Professor Nareissa Smith will be teaching a month long Black History Month series of classes.

This month there will be a series of Black History Month classes that kids grades 4th through 12th can take virtually, for free.

Every Wednesday, Nareissa Smith, a former law professor and a journalist who writes about racial and gender justice issues, will be hosting educational classes on African-American History - in partnership with Varsity Tutors, a live-learning platform.

The first class Black History Basics: Life in Africa & the Beginnings of Slavery (2/3) will explore how Africans created vibrant, fascinating cultures, long before ever coming to America.

In this lesson, students will learn about these African civilizations and their extraordinary contributions to global trade, technology, and culture. Then students will examine the beginnings of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and the arrival of Africans in the Americas.

Following classes:

February 10th - Slavery Facts vs. Fiction

February 17th - The Promise & Failure of Freedom

February 24th - Civil Rights & Beyond
