Flocabulary is a super-cool company that uses hip-hop to teach kids math, science, social studies, English and more.
To celebrate Black History Month, Flocabulary made a series of music videos — like the one below about Martin Luther King Jr. — that parents can use to engage their kids about the importance of Black History.
BuzzFeed spoke to Flocabulary CEO Alex Rappaport, who says there’s a scientific basis behind using hip-hop to teach kids.
To make the best music possible, Flocabulary has a studio in their Brooklyn office where they record both local artists and rappers from Atlanta and Los Angeles.
"Black history is fundamental to American history, but it hasn’t gotten its fair share of coverage in the traditional curriculum," Rappaport says. The story of Katherine Johnson (told below) is a great example.
