Event Details

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 teach-in on Reconstruction at Howard University's Blackburn Center (2397 6th St NW). Learn more.
