Our April 19 branch meeting via Zoom featured a presentation by Christonya Brown, History and Social Studies Coordinator, Virginia Department of Education. Ms. Brown shared information about the new African American History course that has been piloted in 16 schools in Virginia this school year. Joining our meeting were two of the teachers from Portsmouth and Suffolk. Following a highly successful pilot program this year, the course will be available to every school in Virginia in 2021/2022. Ms. Brown explained how the content and the approach to instruction have been developed and implemented this year. We were pleased to have representatives from Norfolk and Suffolk AAUW as well as members of our community join us for this meeting.
