Britannica launches DEI resources for educators

Students are living in times unlike ever before. A global pandemic coupled with a nation confronting racism and systemic oppression has changed what students require from their education and the role educators play in facilitating growth and dialogue. 

To support schools with their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives, Britannica has created Fighting For Equality: African American Experience.

The 20 inclusive multimedia content sets provide teachers with thoughtfully selected curriculum resources and a clear path to engage students in difficult topics, while enabling students to explore under-told history, make deeper connections to systemic issues, and build social-emotional skills such as empathy and awareness.

Each bundles features:

Overview of African American history with content ranging from origins in Africa to triumphs and continued efforts to gain equality
