LET's Talk Podcast: Black History Month Episode

Who better to learn from about Black History Month and its origins than MISD's very own Social Studies Coordinator, Daniel Norwood. As a proud West Mesquite High School graduate and former North Mesquite High School history teacher, Norwood stresses the importance of factual history over opinions and the value of learning multiple perspectives.
