African Americans Turn to Homeschooling; LEGO Meet-Up, and Homeschool Days

NBC reports that one of the major reasons African American families choose to homeschool is to teach black history. Only about 10% of class time is devoted to black history so parents are turning to homeschooling to fill that gap.
