Museum Grants for African American History and Culture

The Malcolm X Memorial Center will strengthen its partnership with the local school district by developing a curriculum to enhance student learning in African American history. The museum will engage a curriculum writer to develop three lesson plans for Omaha Public School District students in grades 6-12. The consultant will work with museum staff, local teachers, and professors at the University of Nebraska at Omaha Black Studies Department to reproduce relevant historical materials and incorporate them into the classroom lessons. An external evaluator and project director will oversee the collection of feedback from students and educators to measure the effectiveness of the project.
