Beyond Febrero 1. Black History is more than just a month.

This is the first episode in a short series of conversations about Black History Month, and how Afro Latinx and Black stories are neither more than just a side note, nor a simple add on during the month of February.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Jessica Reyes about how she approaches this topic with her elementary students, both in February and beyond. She shares her story as a Colombiana, and how she seeks to represent not only her culture and the one of Afro-Colombianes, but also, black history to her predominantly white students.
