RACE: Are We So Different? Exploring Race and Membership in U.S. History Teacher Workshop
October 17, 2014
How did ideas about race and racism become part of American social and political fabric? Join us for an exploration of membership in United States history, or “in groups” and “out groups” closely tied to the history of race. Participants in this two-day workshop will examine ideas and practices that emerged in early America, the “race science” of the Eugenics Movement, the beliefs and policies that supported the Jim Crow era, and the successes and struggles of the Civil Rights Movement.
