Frequently Asked Questions

Want to teach your family about black history and diversity?

Parents often desire to teach their children about black history, but sometimes daily life and busyness can prevent this from happening.  As a result, the next generation doesn't know very much about black heritage.  Legacy Kits makes it easy and fun for every parent to teach their children about black history in American and Africa.

Why do my children need to learn about black history?

Statistics show that children who know about their own heritage have a higher quality of life and a greater since of self identity.  They are well adjusted and can overcome challenges much easier.  In other words, they are resilient in the face of adversity, and their level of self-esteem is more desirable.  When adolescents of other heritages learn about black history, they have a greater appreciation for the human race and are more well rounded when exposed to the history of other cultures.

Schools teach history, so why should I teach black history at home?

Some parents believe that the black history that is being taught in schools lacks some key concepts and important events.   We agree.  It is not their job to teach children about black history.  The job of teaching children to be knowledgeable about black heritage belongs to the parents.  It is daunting for schools to teach in depth about every ethnic group.   Legacy Kits provides quality teaching materials that parents can use to bridge this gap. The time is now.  Ascertain that your children are learning about diversity.  Our kits are unbiased and teaches the truth about history.  WE HAVE CUSTOMERS OF MANY ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS.

I am too busy to fit anything else into our busy schedules.  Is this going to take much time?

The amount of time Legacy Kits take is up to each family.   There is no one way to teach with Legacy Kits.  Once you get your kit, you can decide how you want to incorporate your Legacy Kit into your lives.  Legacy Kits are meant to be engaging and fun while not sacrificing education.  They are delivered to your home on a monthly basis or if 3 or more months are ordered, all orders can be delivered in one delivery.  The content covers a variety of learning styles which ensures that your child is continuously learning about black history.  We have done everything for you!  You just have to subscribe!

I have multiple kids.  Would I have to purchase 2 full kits? 

Great question.  We have customers who share kits with multiple children.  In order to keep costs down for our families, we offer customized subscriptions which require a purchase of at least one full kit subscription.  For instance, one family has 2 children and only wants to order extra projects.  This family will order a full kit subscription and an extra project set.  We also have families who order additional workbooks.  If any of these fits your scenario, please contact us to personalize your order at admin@legacykits.net.

I don't feel qualified to teach black history since I know very little about it.

This is more common than you think. Many parents did not learn much about black history when they were children and are learning as adults.  This is okay!  Our parent customers are eagerly learning right along side their children.  Legacy Kits have become a family journey of learning together.  Please don't let your lack of knowledge about black history prevent you from ordering our kits.  If anything, this should encourage you to purchase our kits even more!

Is Legacy Kits similar to a book club?

We haven't thought of it that way, but we can see how one would classify our business model as a book club.  However, your child will receive much more than books.  We take extra steps to ensure that the lessons are being reinforced by providing hands-on projects (some STEM) and workbooks.

What is the difference between Level I - Elementary and Level II - Middle & Jr High?

History can be disconcerting at times, so we have decided to provide two levels for our customers.  We do not want our little learners to miss out on these awesome kits, so we work tirelessly to find suitable materials for level I.  Parents need to assist more with level I since students are on various reading and ability levels.  Most times, Level I presents the same history topics as level II.  However, level II books are  longer and have more advanced concepts and ideas.  The workbooks for level II are more complex.   Parents will need to be available to discuss advanced content with our Level II students.  For additional questions, please visit one of our social media pages or email us at admin@legacykits.net.
