The AMAAP Journey and National Day of History is a partnership between you, and the Black Heritage Riders Inc.. With yur contributions, the BHR can build alliances, promote unity, understanding, and hope among the people who are impacted by our efforts.
"Our mission is to enrich and enhance classroom instruction and learning for both the teacher and the student."
Our current initiative highlights the achievements of African Americans in the sport of horse racing. The Black Heritage Riders Inc. is the lead equestrian organization promoting the celebration of The National Day of the Black Jockey scheduled Memorial
Day Weekend, May 28th - 30th, 2011. Many people are unaware of this accomplishment in US History. African American jockeys were the first to ride in the Kentucky Derby, the most prestigious sport in the United States horse racing industry and won 15 of the first 28 Derby races which began in 1875.
Your support will enable educational workshops and other literary components from
the National Day of the Black Jocky event to enhance existing National Day of the
Black Jockey educational materials. These materials can be used thematically
as an interdisciplinary unit, departmentally across grade levels, or by the individual
teacher to supplement the instructional process. The lesson plans, study guides,
and audio and visual instructional materials support classroom instruction in the
disciplines of math, science, history and literature
