Black 365 Knowledge Bowl

I’m thrilled to announce that Bigger Than Your Block, LLC is a sponsor of the first Black 365 Knowledge Bowl!

I first heard about the event while reading Our Weekly.

African history lecturer Jamaal Brown, 28, who some recognize as the local griot, or oral historian, is getting ready to introduce the area to a more fun and competitive way of learning and appreciating Black history.

Brown is the creator of the Black365.US Calendar that highlights a day in Black history every day of the year. With his creation, he is launching the AV’s first Black365 Knowledge Bowl, a Jeopardy-style history competition between high school students from all backgrounds.

Teams from Antelope Valley High School, William J. Pete Knight High School and Students on the Academic Rise (SOAR) are hard at work, studying Black history in ten areas: Africa, Egypt, famous quotes, Civil Rights Era, athletics, famous firsts, noteworthy women, Haiti, “Who Am I?” (photo category), and from August in the Black365.US Calendar.

It will be held Saturday, February 19th in Antelope Valley.

Good luck to the sixteen contestants!
