Learn Black History Month, Jim Crow From Rosa Parks' Bus Seat

Complaints about Black History Month infuriate me. The revisionists aren't the ones teaching black history, they're the ones who wrote it out in the first place.

It can revive traditions, restore voices and reinvest in the heritage that was denied. I've always felt intense solidarity with the oppressed and marginalized. But recently, I experienced it in a new way. I sat in Rosa Parks' bus seat. Over Christmas, we took the family to Detroit and visited Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. For more on that plus free printable Black History, Jim Crow lesson plans, read on For Black History Month, Learn Jim Crow Lessons From Rosa Parks' Bus Seat
