In July 2021, Historic Hudson Valley is hosting Slavery in the Colonial North, a National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History & Culture Workshop. There will be two, one-week virtual workshops that bring together nationally-renowned scholars and include virtual field trips to sites throughout the Hudson River Valley. These workshops are designed for K-12 educators (teachers, media specialists, administrators, etc.), but we have a handful of spots available for museum educators as well. Full details about the program can be found on the workshop website. This is a free program and comes with a stipend. We hope you will help spread the word to your networks and/or consider having a colleague from your site apply. For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
