The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) would like to remind all district personnel that, pursuant to Act 326 of 1997 and Ark. Code Ann. Sec. 6-16-121, all teachers should be incorporating African-American history into the social studies curriculum. February is Black History month, and this would be an excellent time to make a determined effort in this regard. The ADE website does have an extensive listing of resources for African-American studies, which can be accessed at http://arkedu.state.ar.us/africanamerican/index.html.

The attachment to this memo contains additional resources for incorporating African-American history into the social studies curriculum throughout the year. These resources are also posted on the Arkansas Council of Social Studies (ACSS) list serve at http://list.k12.ar.us/mailman/listinfo/acss.
