Back to School With The HistoryMakers

Sponsor an Event Today!

Become a part of Back To School With HistoryMakers. Each year at the end of September this program brings HistoryMakers into schools nationwide to share their stories with, and motivate, our youth. So far over 700 HistoryMakers have visited over 400 schools in 125 different cities in 35 different states. This program has already reached thousands of students and we would like you to help us reach more.

The goals of Back To School With The HistoryMakers are to:           
  • 1. Encourage commitment to student achievement, parental involvement, increased test scores, high school graduation, and successful college entry and matriculation.
  • 2. Respond to the Obama Administration’s call for service in a real and meaningful way.
  • 3. Bring African American leaders into schools to see things firsthand, and to speak to and hopefully motivate students directly.
  • 4. Bring additional resources into the public school system such as our The HistoryMakers digital archive of oral history interviews.
  • 5. Raise awareness of the achievements of accomplished African Americans in the schools’ local communities.
