This Black History Month, it is important for all of us to take the time to learn and reflect on the accomplishments of key civil rights figures such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
In recent years, there has been a shift in our society’s dialogue surrounding race and racism. It is now more important than ever to provide special education students with an understanding of Black History and its contributions to American culture - especially that of Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr. was an iconic leader in the civil rights movement during the 1950s and 60s. He dedicated his life to promoting peace and equality among races and classes through his inspiring words and peaceful demonstrations.
Dr. King taught us about the importance of human dignity, respect, courage and love for one another regardless of their differences in skin color or culture.
His legacy remains a testament to our shared history which should be remembered by future generations.
It is essential for teachers of special education students to promote lessons about leaders like Dr. King and other important figures from Black History such as Rosa Parks and Frederick Douglass in order to demonstrate that people from any background can make a positive change in society when given equal access to opportunity and education.
