E. Ky. high school offers year-round black history

Posted: Updated:

WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) -- A teacher at an eastern Kentucky high school says students have responded well to the first yearlong course on black history.

History teacher Amy Madsen said she asked to teach the subject at George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester and after going through a process where the idea was vetted, she got approval to begin teaching the subject this school year.

Madsen told The Winchester Sun that the class allows students to study more than just a brief overview of black history during one month out of the school year.

The curriculum has included novels, such as "The Color of Water" and educational movies like "A Raisin in the Sun."
