BLACK HISTORY IS AMERICAN HISTORY

**Our History 365: Uncovering the Rich Heritage of Black People**

 

Our History 365 is an interactive program under the umbrella of Family Love & Involvement Program, Inc. (FLIP) that sheds light on the significant contributions and achievements of Black people to the world in various spheres - economic, political, and cultural. This program aims to bridge the knowledge gap for students in the public school system by providing a comprehensive understanding of African and Black history, from ancient civilizations to present day.

Designed for a diverse audience, Our History 365 is tailored for individuals aged 9 to adult, with a focus on students of African descent. The program seeks to promote self-awareness, self-worth, and a sense of pride among participants by exploring their African heritage. Additionally, we invite youth and adults from all backgrounds to join us, fostering conversations that promote cross-cultural understanding and empathy.

Contrary to common assumptions, Our History 365 does not begin with slavery. Instead, we embark on a journey through time, exploring the rich traditions and achievements of African civilizations. We also address contemporary issues affecting young people, examining their impact on daily life.

By participating in Our History 365, you'll gain a deeper understanding of your place in the world, as well as the courage and resilience of your ancestors. Join us in celebrating the triumphs and legacy of Black people throughout history.
