HistoryThon is a virtual walkathon to support education about African American history, in concert with our work to support educators in building expertise in K-12 anti-racist education.

This consequential journey through U.S. history highlights walks, trails and sites of historical importance to the African American narrative. We will provide participants with a map of walks, trails and sites in Massachusetts and New England created by the African American Trail Project (Center for the Study of race and Democracy, Tufts University) so they can do walks and visit sites in their own backyard while abiding by CDC and local guidelines.

Together, we will raise awareness about local African American history, elevate and prioritize learning about African American history in all schools, and support Primary Source’s work to get high quality, accurate resources about African American history into the hands of every teacher.
Register-today

Register as an individual: Take this opportunity to visit African American historic sites and trails and learn about their significance while joining us in elevating and prioritizing learning about African American history in all schools. Funds raised during HistoryThon will support Primary Source’s work to get high quality, accurate resources about African American history into the hands of every teacher. Prizes will be awarded to the person who walks the most miles, visits the most sites, builds the largest team, and raises the most funds, and to the teacher who engages the most students.

Build a Team: A great way to participate is by inviting friends, family, and colleagues to join the HistoryThon journey! A group of participants who complete HistoryThon together, either in person or virtually, would register on the online platform as a "team." For every team that raises $1,000 or more, Primary Source will give away a professional development course to a teacher and feature that team (and the affiliated organization, if applicable) in our quarterly digital Teacher Digest.

Share your journey: Tag @primarysource when you share photos, posts, and mini vlogs via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and use the hashtag #PSHistoryThon.
