Why Botwc Box?
Beyond the Classroom and Black History Month!
For the last five years we’ve traveled the country, engaging thousands of children, visiting elementary schools and educating kids on trailblazers known and unknown. We realized that Black history was only being taught in February, if at all, and when it was, the subjects were the same cast of historical figures. After receiving requests from educators and parents for innovative tools and seeing young people expand their aspirations after exposing them to a broader range of history makers, it was clear that we needed to create something that would engage children on a larger scale with consistent content curated just for them. Enter the BOTWC Box.
