Black education groups — along with elected officials, nonprofits and academic experts — are working with the New York City’s Department of Education to develop a citywide K-12 Black Studies curriculum in the city’s public school system.

Key Context:

The Education Equity Action Plan initiative would develop an interdisciplinary curriculum — first as a pilot program — that explores the early African civilizations, the trajectory of the Black experience in America and the accomplishments and contributions of the African diaspora, program leaders told POLITICO.

The programs would aim to explore the role of race in power relationships and the impact of systemic and institutional racism. The pilot would be accompanied by a professional development program to help teachers and administrators implement the curriculum. The goal is to launch the curriculum and professional development program between the first and second quarter of 2022 and implement the pilot at a select number of DOE schools.
