“Derrick Brooks Charities is excited to promote African-American History in Hillsborough County Schools. Inspired by the Florida Commissioner of Education’s goals to implement the teaching of the history of African peoples and the contributions of African-Americans to society into the curriculum of Florida’s schools, Derrick Brooks Charities has partnered with EVERFI, the nation’s leading educational technology company, to provide 306: African-American History to select district middle schools.
306: African-American History is a technology based resource to teach how African-American influence can be found at the core of American life; from science and academia, to music and arts. When you explore the journey of African-American history, you find stories of strength, resilience, and achievement. Communicating these stories is foundational to building shared values and inspiring today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders. “
Beginning in the fall 2017 Derrick Brooks Charities will be implementing 306 in 5 pre-selected middle schools. All outcomes will be tracked and reported by EVERFI and reported upon class completion. Please visit us soon for new exciting announcements.
