BLM Week in Schools to ‘Celebrate Globalism’ and Discuss Disruption of Nuclear Family

Jeremiah Poff, Washington Examiner, February 6, 2023

Public schools across the country are beginning Black History Month with Black Lives Matter week in schools, which includes a national panel on “celebrating globalism” and a discussion on disrupting the nuclear family in one Washington school district.

The organization National Black Lives Matter at School’s BLM Week of Action runs from Feb. 6-10 and encourages schools, educators, and students to “organiz[e] for racial justice in education” during the annual week.

The national group’s Week of Action 2023 events include a panel on “Celebrating Globalism and Collective Value,” which the group said will “talk about the importance of valuing Black life and how it relates to us collectively” {snip}

The group encourages organizations, schools, and school districts to share their agendas for participating in the annual week of action. Several national education organizations, including the National Education Association, the nation’s largest teachers union, and the American School Counselor Association, have publicly endorsed the week.


In the state of Washington, Shoreline Public Schools hosts a five-week anticipatory program for BLM Week of Action, with each week featuring a different theme. The school district also said that “equity and justice” are taught in every class during the week.


The themes for the preceding weeks included “Black Women and Unapologetically Black,” “Intergenerational, Black Families, and Black Villages,” “Transgender Affirming, LGBTQ+ Affirming, and Collective Value,” and “Diversity and Globalism.”

The school district described “black villages” as the “disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other.”

In Milwaukee Public Schools, attendees to the district’s various BLM week events are encouraged to wear “Black Lives Matter or social justice shirts.”
