Racial Justice Reporting for the Classroom: Stories for Black History Month, and Beyond

Posted by Pulitzer Center on March 2, 2021


With the end of Black History Month we are committed to supporting educators in continuing to amplify underreported stories about the challenges, struggles, joys, and triumphs of Black communities throughout the year. You can always find reporting resources in our Racial Justice portal. Our team can also connect your classes to workshops and virtual journalist presentations that highlight the experiences of Black Americans and reporting by Black journalists on pressing issues facing communities worldwide.

Here is a selection of reporting from that portal, ranging from stories about the impacts of COVID-19 on Black communities to celebrating Afro-Latinx identity in Puerto Rico, that you can explore with your students! (Scroll down and click on Projects.)
