Reconstruction Teach-In

  • Howard University 2400 6th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20059 United States (map)

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 D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice, a project of Teaching for Change, and the Howard University School of Education for a half day of workshops for middle and high school teachers facilitated by the Zinn Education Project.
