Black History 365
New School Curriculum aims to ‘fill in the blanks’ about untold aspects of black history. The Black History 365 includes events from ancient civilization to current events.
There is a team of about 40 historians and researchers who’ve created a new school curriculum called Black History 365; An Inclusive Account of American History, that explores crucial pieces of history often left out of text books.
“We have over 3,000 original images that many people have never seen before,” said BH365 CEO, Walter Milton Jr., who said the course work chronicles black history, the good, bad and the ugly.
The curriculum is offered in hard copy format and through digital and interactive platforms.
“And we start off in ancient Africa, sort of the beginning of time. And then we come all the way up to contemporary history,” Milton said.
From the role of African civilizations to the George Floyd incident in Minnesota, and pivotal events in between, CO-Founder Joel Freeman said “the course work focuses on historic moments that have shaped the climate of our nation today.”

“We have the syphilis project, Tuskegee Syphilis Project that has caused a lot of mistrust in the African-American community. Just the lynchings, Jesse Washington, in Texas, just half the half the town came out to see the lynching,” Freeman said.
BH365 Media Relations Director Carleen Brown said “the course work also includes a musical component that students listen to and learn about music from different eras.”
