This event is organized by Primary Sources.

This session is designed to bring educators into conversation with each other regarding the intersection between curriculum and pedagogy in the long struggle for racial justice in Massachusetts. Featuring the short documentary film, Legacy of Courage: Black Changemakers in Massachusetts, Past, Present, and Future, we will explore the setbacks, strategies, and accomplishments of those who have struggled for racial justice in the Commonwealth since the 18th century while contemplating the role of educators in contemporary, ongoing, and unresolved efforts to solidify and expand racial justice and educational opportunities for marginalized communities. Within these efforts, this session will situate civic agency and activism as a vehicle for meaningful instruction as well as a tool for social progress.

Please note that an additional registration step is required for this event. Please register for this event here to receive the Zoom meeting details.
