Confronting the devastating impact racism in the U.S. Education System has on Black students’ mental health

New campaign shows that everyone has a role to play in rewriting the lessons students learn about race in school

The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation (BLHF) – a nonprofit organization founded by award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson – launched a public awareness campaign to address the mental health impact the education system places on students, particularly Black students ages 12-22. The six-week campaign, titled “The Unspoken Curriculum,” kicks off during Mental Health Awareness Month with a video of a spoken word poem that highlights how the life lessons students learn about race in school are not always in the lesson plan, but they are lessons students carry with them into adulthood.
