Event description

Description

  • This workshop is for educators and lifelong learners who are interested in teaching about American slavery and addressing tough issues in the classroom and in such public forums as museums and learning centers.

  • Issues include why teaching about slavery in American history and memory is important for understanding current conflicts, such as the Confederate monuments debate, policing and incarceration, and immigration.

  • Discussions will cover understanding Hawai‘i's own charged history of race.

  • Also, participants will learn about teachers’ resources available online, including through the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Antislavery.

Lunch provided. RSVP to reserve your seat & resources.
