Hundreds Protest Florida Black History Curriculum in Miami

400+ protesters hailing from a variety of groups took to the streets against the new standards for Black History in Florida as set by the Board of Education, which obliges the instruction of the “benefits of slavery” for enslaved people and erases wide swathes of Black history and resistance to oppression as part of a wider effort to erase equitable education in the state. Organizations participating in the demonstration featured the Teamsters National Black Caucus, Black Lives Matter Broward, and radical student groups such as the Student Resistance Committee, Plantation High YDSA, and FIU YDSA.
