With Teaching Hard History, we’re calling on American educators, curriculum writers and policy makers to confront the fact that slavery and racial injustice are not only a foundational part of the nation’s past, but a continuing influence on the present. Participants of this webinar will hear from historian Hasan Kwame Jeffries about why we must teach about American slavery honestly and comprehensively. Participants will also test their knowledge of this critical topic with a quiz, as well as interact with Teaching Tolerance’s new collection of resources designed to help educators overcome the shortcomings of textbooks and state standards in teaching this hard history.
