Welcome To Unmasked: The Simone Project

Unmasked is a resource website that promotes social justice and minority history education in classroom settings. This site also provides current events, highlights misinformed history, and provides opportunity for independent learning  to help students dive deeper into the topics discussed throughout the 

website. Often these topics can create uncomfortable classroom environments and are left out of curriculums, so our website targets teens and other students that are interested in learning more about the non “white-washed” history of America.


highlights key facts from the past that have been excluded from mainstream history in hopes of promoting knowledge, compassion and understanding towards minority groups, religious groups and the LGBTQ community.

Minority History

Social Justice

fairness in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within society. This site expands on the following topics as it relates to social justice.


Police Brutality


Victims of Racial Bias

Independent Learning

Although it is our goal to expand one’s knowledge of minority culture, an individual must be willing to learn in order for this educational resource to be useful. Therefore, we have put together a list of podcasts, books, and movies for students to further educate themselves on issues BIPOC and the LGBTQ+ community continue to face in this country, as well as their experiences. In addition, we provided a variety of mediums to best suit individual learning styles.

Students will also become more engaged with news platforms and aware of the issues within their community.
