Here’s the Zoom link: https://uno.zoom.us/j/89689403407?pwd=MFVLRkpaMXBmcnc4VkozQThKYUtaQT09

The Hard History Project has launched a monthly Virtual Professional Learning Community (VPLC) in partnership with University of New Orleans’ Midlo Center. Our lead presenter is Dr. Kate Shuster, the director of the Hard History Project and longtime manager of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Hard History Initiative.

Today’s conversation will focus on Summary Objectives 7 and 8 from the Teaching Hard History Framework – here’s SO 7, and here’s SO 8. That means we’re going to be talking about the early Republic stretching through Indian Removal and the domestic trade in enslaved people.

And this month Mary Niall Mitchell from the University of New Orleans will be joining us to lend her expertise. She’s going to talk about teaching the Haitian revolution and connecting that to the history of Louisiana and New Orleans as well as using the Freedom on the Move archive.

Please bring your questions and ideas to the table!
