How do place and race interact in U.S. history? This program centers Black families, communities, and individuals--specific lives in particular places-- as a window into African American resilience and accomplishment as well as our region’s fraught history of racism. Participants will explore strategies to integrate place-based learning and “hidden” histories of diverse communities. The program will feature lessons and resources to refresh and inspire the curriculum in all humanities disciplines. Our experts are Dr. Kendra Field and Dr. Kerri Greenidge, two ground-breaking scholars of African American history and culture. They are faculty members and co-directors of the African American Trail Project at Tufts University—the inspiration for Primary Source’s recent HistoryThon initiative.

Open to all K-12 educators.
