The Hard History Project is hosting a monthly Virtual Professional Learning Community (VPLC) in partnership with University of New Orleans’ Midlo Center.

Tuesday, March 9th, at 7:00 EST | Link to event

Every month we’ll dig in deep to look at at least two of the Summary Objectives of the 6-12 Framework for Learning for Justice’s  Teaching Hard History Initiative. You are welcome to join.

Our lead presenter will be Dr. Kate Shuster, the director of the Hard History Project and the long-time manager of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Hard History Initiative.

This session will feature Dr. Hasan Kwame Jeffries, host of the Teaching Hard History podcast and Associate Professor of history at The Ohio State University where he teaches courses on the Civil Rights and Black Power Movement. He is a renowned author and scholar, and a really funny, down to earth guy. Here’s his faculty bio.

The focus will be on Summary Objectives 11 & 12 of the Framework:

SO 11: “Students will recognize that enslaved people resisted slavery in ways that ranged from violence to smaller, everyday means of asserting their humanity and opposing their enslavers…”

SO 12: “Students will discuss the nature, persistence and impact of the spiritual beliefs and cultures of enslaved people…”

The session will last 90 minutes, with about 45 minutes of that being Q&A. Check out our Google Folder where you can share resources and lessons for feedback each month.

Please feel free to share this information with any and all educators who might like to attend.
