Mr Davis Classroom

Mr Davis is a long time student and teacher of Black History.  With over 30 years of experience teaching, learning, and traveling Mr Davis offers unique insight and perspective in to old historical narratives.  The Classroom offers a multi media experience modernizing the teaching and learning of Black History for the 21st Century learner.  Each class is a portal into a new and dynamic way of exploring stories about the past of African and African American people.  The focus of each lesson is to decolonize some aspect of the false stories Black children have been taught all over the world to reinforce White Supremacy.
