Description

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.

Over the course of the day, teachers from the Dan River Region will gain a greater understanding of the local civil rights story, have the tools necessary to integrate these stories into their classrooms in a meaningful way, and gain licensure renewal credits.
