Black Lives Matter at School is a national coalition organizing for racial justice in education. We encourage all educators, students, parents, unions, and community organizations to join the annual week of action during the first week of February.

We have curated a variety of classroom resources for every age group. These resources are all free of charge and meant to be shared and used. The goal of these lessons and activities is to challenge racism and oppression and providing students with the vocabulary and tools needed to take action.
How can a school community support you in being unapologetically Black?
Submit a creative response including but not limited to drawing, painting, collage, poetry, song/rap, or any other type of expression by Sunday, February 12th.
