Beyoncé Will Teach About ‘Unsung Heroes’ to Celebrate Black History Month

BLKHIS_3_We don’t know which we’d prefer: Beyoncé as a course of study, or Beyoncé as a history teacher. It’s now possible to have both — but while the former will cost you lots of money, the latter only involves checking into her website.

Throughout the month of February, which also happens to be Black History Month, the queen will be spotlighting heroes of the African American community. First up are gay civil rights activist Bayard Rusin, and Bessie Coleman, who became the first black women to own a pilot’s license in 1921 after going to France (because America was not just racist but also very sexist too). You can follow the rest of the lessons via the #28DaysBlackHistory hashtag.

“In honor of African American men and women who have worked diligently dedicating their lives to inspire our future, I want to shine a spotlight on their achievements and sacrifices during Black History Month,” Beyoncé vicariously promises through the person who takes care of all her blog stuff. “These are some of the unsung heroes, past and present. For 28 days I will highlight their stories in hopes to inspire, motivate and move you.”

See, education system? There are ways to do this right, and ways to do it so, so very wrong.
