INTERNATIONAL

BlackCatholicHistory is the internationally taught K-8 curriculum supplement which enriches Social Studies, Religion, and English/Language Arts lesson plans. It emphasizes the universality of the Church and devotion to the Blessed Mother under the title Our Lady of Kibeho. This program can be utilized in Catholic elementary schools, parish R.E. programs, and Catholic home school groups. BlackCatholicHistory is currently taught in Catholic schools across the United States and in Uganda.

HISTORICAL

The program’s material spans the history of Black Catholics from Catholicism in Africa during the early centuries of the Church to present day canonization processes of African-American candidates (one of these candidates may soon be the Church’s first African American saint). The material is produced in grade appropriate handouts to be integrated throughout the year in Social Studies, Religion, and Language Arts curriculum. Teacher Guides provide specific suggestions on inclusion of this material in the current curriculum guidelines

CURRICULUM

The material is accessed through the website BlackCatholicHistory.com. Categories on the website include American History, African History, Saints, Blessed Mother and Let’s Meet…. (interviews with inspirational Black Catholics). New material is produced and posted yearly. Teachers have access to the entire program and could utilize handouts as best fit the particular need/ability of their students. Older students could access the material themselves if approved by faculty.
