This teacher content academy exploring Danville area stories of segregation, integration and civil rights will take place in the evening of Friday, June 9th with an open community reception and keynote by historian Ed Ayers. The Teacher Content Academy will continue the next morning and early afternoon of Saturday, June 10th. The Academy will feature concurrent panel sessions in the morning, a group lunch and conclude with a tour of the 1963 Danville Civil Rights Exhibit at the Danvillian Gallery and a reflection period.
