Black History Month From slavery to freedom, segregation to civil rights, the African-American experience has been long and eventful. This February, you can explore this remarkable journey with BrainPOP’s Black History Spotlight. You’ll meet some of the great African-American leaders of all time—from Frederick Douglass, whose passionate arguments against slavery inspired abolitionists in the 19th century, to Martin Luther King, whose tireless fight for the dream of equality earned him the Nobel Peace Prize. You’ll explore the artistic achievements of the Harlem Renaissance, learn how blues music emerged from the rural Mississippi Delta, and discover how Jackie Robinson hit a line drive through baseball’s color barrier. There are also topics on the Underground Railroad, which delivered hundreds of slaves north to freedom, and the Brown vs. Board of Education case, which ended school segregation in America. Finally, you’ll get to know two of the most important African-American women of the 20th century: Oprah Winfrey, who defied the odds to become a billionaire, and Maya Angelou, whose poetry and prose have delighted readers from all walks of life. There’s an awful lot to learn, so click on these movies to find out more!
