Celebrate Black History Month by participating in GBHS Black Saga Trivia.

Black history is American history—and it should be taught year-round. But Black History Month offers a great opportunity to focus attention on the history and contributions of African Americans. Questions will be read during the morning announcements on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays of each week throughout the month of February. Students will have the opportunity to provide their answer to the question of the day in the media center. On a post-it, students are to include their first and last name, 1A teacher’s name and the answer to the question. Winners will be announced on Friday of each week with a chance to win a prize.

TODAY’S QUESTION IS: (Read question twice)

  1. In what year did Maryland pass a law that recognized slavery as legal?

Thank you for your participation in this month Black Saga trivia questions as we honor and celebrate the past and present contributions of African Americans in the United States and abroad.

Know the Past, Shape the Future
