Can We Talk? Session 2: Black History is American History (Co-sponsored with IDEAL)

February 24, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Hosted online via Zoom

Infuse Black history into the curriculum year-round. Black history isn’t a gimmick meant for one month out of the year, with a student assembly or a potluck dinner with traditional Black foods. Black history is American history. Students should learn throughout the year and throughout all disciplines about the accomplishments, experiences, and perspectives of Black people. In this session we will have an open dialogue on the ways that instructors can infuse Black History into your course. We will also explore the impact of racism in the Black experience. It’s imperative that teachers not reinforce a milquetoast version of Black history that is anti-Black because of its erasure of painful truths.  No matter what subject you teach, there are ways you can infuse Black history into your daily lessons in a way that is prophetic and purposeful.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL).

Facilitator: Valerie Dudley, Director of Multicultural Education and Training, IDEAL
