The Utah Jazz are excited for the launch of a new program called Black History Heroes, for all K-12 students throughout the state. Utah Jazz players, head coach Quin Snyder and team governors Ryan and Ashley Smith will share with students the global impact of Black history heroes.

Classrooms throughout Utah are invited to join the streaming series on the Utah Jazz YouTube channel. The team will explore people or events in Black history that have inspired them. These “Black History Heroes” discussions will go live at 10 a.m. MT on Feb. 18, 23, and 25 and will be available on-demand for use as part of school curriculums.

We hope teachers will find this series informational and supplement what is already being taught in their classrooms.

The Jazz are asking for your support in communicating this endeavor to your schools, teachers and parents to encourage them to watch each “Black History Heroes” episode as they are released.
