Tolerance.org fills in historical gaps during Black History Month

Each week in February http://Tolerance.org is featuring a profile of an African American who made major contributions to society but have been largely ignored by the history books.
Last year Tolerance.org offered a four-part series, “Why Wasn’t I Taught That?” to mark the annual Black History Month. The goal was to share histories that should be part of modern everyday knowledge but aren’t. The series was so popular that Tolerance.org is offering another four parts this year.
The first installment focuses on Charles Drew, father of the modern blood bank.
Each profile includes suggestions for students and teachers as well as links for further information and educational materials.
According to the web site, “http://Tolerance.org is a principal online destination for people interested in dismantling bigotry and creating, in hate’s stead, communities that value diversity. If you want to know how to transform yourself, your home, your school, your workplace or your community, http://Tolerance.org is a place to start and continue the journey.”
Tolerance.org is a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center. http://www.tolerance.org.
