  3. Philippine-American War
  4. Jim Crow
  5. The genocide of Native Americans
  6. Transatlantic slave trade
  7. The Middle Passage
  8. The history of White American racism
  9. Black Codes
  10. Slave patrols
  11. Ku Klux Klan

  13. Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo
  14. How white racism grew out of slavery and genocide
  15. How whites still benefit from slavery and genocide
  16. White anti-racism
  17. The Southern strategy
  18. The rape of black slave women

And so on. No fear of running out of topics: there is more than one a day! I am sure my commenters can come up with tons more, probably some big ones that are not coming to mind at the moment (I did not list slavery, the abolitionist movement, the civil war, Reconstruction or Lincoln since they are, in fact, covered in history class, however poorly).

Why stop at a month? This needs to be taught year-round.

ATTENTION FOR A SECOND, YO: 

Real talk, this animal (the Ordovician Helmet crab, aka the Horseshoe crab, aka the Atlantic’s most at-risk shelled animal) is of a species that is close to 450 million years old. They are considered endangered, and often wash up on the shores of Long Island (this big lady crab was at TR park in Oyster Bay)

Note: these animals are often used to extract their blue blood and cure diseases. They help the ocean out big time. And they are one of the longest-surviving species on the planet. They’re washing up and people don’t think to/are scared to save them because of their deceivingly harmless barbs. 

Take note, friends. Their barbs are NOT stingers. They cannot hurt you. Their pinchers aren’t pinchers, they’re just little legs that are actually really soft! The barb tail they have is actually what they use to stick into the ocean floor or the sand when waves knock them over or they flip onto their backs by accident. And you can help them out by flipping them back over very quickly and helping them scuttle back into the water if you see them struggling. 

This is way important. Just call me the Sarah McLachlan of horseshoe crabs.

I’m a teacher and today two new students signed up at my school - three year old twin boys. Their names are Sora and Riku.

That generation is here.

It begins.
