It’s Happening in Brooklyn!

BHS’s exhibit, It Happened in Brooklyn, has been drawing great attendance from NYC public school kids. You may not have known that BHS education staff was part of the Task Force that developed the Scope & Sequence curriculum guide used by Social Studies teachers throughout the city.

It Happened in Brooklyn was designed to directly link up to what the kids are learning in class. Kids love the big map on the floor and the musket, but they’re also fascinated by the slave bill of sale for a transaction that happened right here in Brooklyn.
