GEORGIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS BLACK HISTORY & DIVERSITY BILL "Ga.HB 481"
GEORGIA/ AMERICA NEEDS EDUCATION ON RACE, NOT A CONVERSATION ON RACE!
The advocate for Georgia House Bill 481 is Terry Thomas: a native Georgian, and retired educator with 20 years experience in the classrooms as a Journalism, Fine Arts, and Mass Media teacher
His community service began in 1988 when he organized a professional multi- ethnic art exhibit entitled "Brotherhood and Co-existence" for a Martin L. King celebration in Palm Beach County Florida. He furthered his community engagement by founding the (AACAO) African American Cultural Arts Organization Inc.,dedicated to infusing all aspects of black art, history, and the black aesthetic into the community. He produced Black History programs and inspired excellence in his young arts and journalism students at his school. he has many other achievements, I digress.
For his tireless efforts, He received the National Carter G. Woodson Award from (NEA) National Education Association, and (ASALH) the Association for the Study of African American Life and History- the group started by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, known as, the father of black history.
Subsequently, 5 states have already legislatively included this Black History initiative into their statewide public school core curriculums.
Ga. House Bill 481 will mandate the teaching of Black History, as well as the Jewish Holocaust, Native American History, Latino, and Women's' Contribution to Georgia and America in all Georgia Public Schools CORE CURRICULUM from k-12.
BECAUSE OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS' CORE CURRICULUM EDUCATION SHOULD REFLECT THE VAST AND BEAUTIFUL DIVERSITY OF ALL AMERICANS.
"What we need is education on race not just a conversation on race, to heal race relations in America."
