Liberate History: Connecting Themes of Holocaust Education and African American History
|Date||Thu, Feb 4, 3:00pm - 4:00pm|
To honor Black History Month, join Echoes & Reflections and Demetrius Hobson from Liberate History, an organization that curates African American History lessons, who will share resources to support instruction of African American History in the U.S., and engage in conversations on connections to Holocaust education.
Stories of freedom, resistance, resilience, and agency can be seen throughout history, and are particularly powerful narratives in Holocaust and African American history. The pedagogy for teaching each unique history is intertwined, with the need to focus on the human story, center the experience of the individual, and promote civic engagement.
During this Echoes & Reflections webinar, special guest Demetrius Hobson from Liberate History, an organization that curates African American History lessons to align to the CCSS, Cooperative Learning Strategies, and Five Tenets of Critical Race Theory, will highlight resources to support classroom instruction and increase student understanding of African American history in the U.S. Participants will also engage in conversation with Echoes & Reflections Deputy Director Melissa Mott about practical connections to Holocaust education.
