Location: Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture & the Environment, Freeport

An educator workshop and teacher-appreciation dinner with Dr. Hasan Kwame Jeffries of The Ohio State University, Dr. Kate Shuster of the Hard History Project, and longtime education leader Maureen Costello, who works at the intersection of history, civics, and social justice education.

Two major projects – Teaching Hard History and the 1619 Project – began changing the way schools taught the story of race-based American slavery.  In the years that followed, the movement made a lot of headway as teachers took workshops, gained access to accessible online tools, and brought previously untold stories and overlooked perspectives into the classroom. But in the past two years, teachers and schools came under attack for teaching honest and hard history. Today, the question is: What's next, and where do we go from here? Attendees will hear from the leaders of Teaching Hard History and learn about new resources for teaching and defending a fuller history. They will also have the opportunity to engage in conversation about how to meet the challenge ahead of us. 

WHERE2024 event, presented by Atlantic Black Box in collaboration with Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment, the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine, Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education, Maine Black Community Development, and The Third Place.
