2024 Black History Month

Each February, the Corvallis School District observes and honors Black History Month as a month of significance and celebration. It’s a time to come together to honor Black Americans’ rich heritage, contributions, and experiences throughout history.

This month serves as a reminder of the importance of acknowledging and understanding Black individuals and communities’ struggles, triumphs, and invaluable contributions. It’s a time to reflect on their profound impact and shaping of our society, culture, and collective identity.

Celebrating Black History Month is not just about recognizing the past; it’s about embracing the present and shaping the future. It’s about fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of diverse experiences and perspectives that daily enrich our lives and classrooms.

While Black History Month is a dedicated time for celebration and reflection, it is important to recognize that our commitment to deepening our understanding of Black history and culture extends far beyond a month. It’s a year-round endeavor that requires ongoing education, dialogue, and action.
