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. “
This program began in the Fall of 2018 and we are currently in year number 2 for this program for the 2018-2019 school year we have just completed recruitment and are serving the following schools: Giunta, Greco, Ferrell, Carter G. Woodson and Barrington Middle School.
