Reconstruction Teach-In at Howard University
Reconstruction, the era immediately following the Civil War and emancipation, is full of stories that help us see the possibility of a future defined by racial equity. Yet the possibilities and achievements of this era are too often overshadowed by the violent white supremacist backlash. Today — in a moment where activists are struggling to make Black lives matter — every student should probe the relevance of Reconstruction.
Join the Howard University School of Education, Teaching for Change’s D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice, and the Zinn Education Project for a teach-in on Reconstruction for grades 3-12 pre-service and in-service teachers. Learn more.
