Black History Month Presentation

(The study of Black History is by far my favorite subject of interest. I search out museums when traveling. I read and research this subject more than all others.)

This session will cover the following topics based on a 45-60 min format:

  • Brian will cover key local, national, and world historical topics related to Black History and Culture.

  • 05-10 minutes I will open with a historical video that will capture the audience. This video will cover little known but 
    important America history

  • 10-20 minutes: I will cover other key historical facts that are local to the city, state, or region where the presentation is taking place

  • 20-30 minutes: I will cover select history that address the impact African Americans has had in the United States as well as the world.

  • 30-40 minutes I will ask the audience questions about their view points on this subject

  • 40-50 minutes: I will provide a quick summary of the presentation and then I will use it to encourage racial and cultural understandings across all races in the audience.

  • During the presentation I will use the topics to destroy discouraging myths for African American.

  • During the presentation I will use the topics to further explain present day conditions and why they exist and what we can do about them to move our local communities forward

  • Format and discussion will be adjusted as needed
