We partnered with the National Conference on Citizenship and University of Alabama to talk about a new approach to teaching history. Dr. Giggie and Ms. Lawson taught a History of Us course specifically focusing on Black history every day of the class. Two of their students, Del and Noa, discussed their experience going through the class as high school students, and how it has affected their lives. Our Education Director Gabrielle shared about our collaborative partnership with Dr. Giggie and Ms. Lawson for this class. We partnered with their students to create a Historical Issue Guide on Reconstruction, giving them the opportunities become historians and shape a deliberative guide on a complex topic.
