High Schools Are Now Offering AP African American Studies.

Every February, a Black person is heard somewhere saying “we actually only get one month, THE SHORTEST MONTH, to show Black history??” February was chosen for a reason by the founding father of Black history week, Carter G. Woodson. The late historian is perhaps pleased that some high schools across the country have officially begun to show AP African American Studies for the primary time…and it’s for a couple of month.

The College Board, the organization behind America’s Advanced Placement (AP) courses, launched a pilot program for 60 high schools to show AP African American Studies. Amid right wingers using Black history as a political football to win over (i.e. scare) their voters into supporting conservative politicians up to now couple of years, schools quietly introduced this system this fall.

We all know most of us got the MLK, Rosa Parks, and mayybbbe Malcolm X trifecta of lessons during Black History Month in highschool. But here’s what else we hope is within the curriculum for the brand new AP pilot course.
