In 1967, 3,500 Philadelphia students walked out of several high schools demanding African American History be taught in School District of Philadelphia schools. The following decades saw a continuous call for a Black studies curriculum, culminating with the SRC mandate of 2005 African American History becoming a required course to graduate from Philadelphia High Schools. Please join us in the continuation of this legacy of Self-Determination
History is a people’s memory, and without a memory, man is demoted to lower animals.
