Dr. Hasan Kwame Jeffries, of the ‘Teaching Hard History’ podcast, along with Dennis Culliton, Executive Director of the Witness Stones Project, will present a virtual workshop/webinar; Witness Stones & Hard History. The Connecticut Association of Independent Schools (CAIS), is pleased to offer this program on Monday, August 3rd and Tuesday, August 4th from 10am-noon.
The workshop will provide participants with a solid foundation to begin the challenging, but necessary, work to help all teach and understand the role that slavery played in the development of our Northern communities, and how the legacy of slavery continues to shape the systemic racism we witness today.
State Representative Patricia Wilson Pheanious, vice-chair of the Witness Stones Project, will be the keynote speaker. Please see the attached flyer for more information on the workshop content, as well as registration information.
