How Black Lives Matter Is Changing What Students Learn During Black History Month

“I definitely think that Black Lives Matter encouraged people to learn about other movements that came before,” says Tatiana Amaya, 19, a freshman at Claremont McKenna College who took a required black history course in her Philadelphia high school. “It’s central to understanding that black oppression still exists today.”

All very cool, but within the context in the history of the US or how it relates to capitalism at large when it is confined to one month or one week of study does little if anything towards informing or showing a true view of the how and whys of todays world just as is said here in the article:

"In 2005, Philadelphia became the first major American city to require students to take a black history class to graduate. Confining black history lessons to February, as many schools do, is “the exact opposite” of what Woodson envisioned, says Greg Carr, Chair of the Department of Afro-American Studies at Howard University, who led the team that developed the Philadelphia curriculum."

Black studies should be a key element at every level of World and American History along with any social/civics study curriculum in grades K-12. And particularly if one is teaching a white class.
IMHO
