On April 24, 1915, Ottoman officials arrested 250 Armenian intellectuals who were accused of being a subversive fifth column. In the shadow of the First World War, this act marked the beginning of the first genocide of the 20th century. However, occurring decades before Raphael Lemkin coined the term “genocide,” the forced migration and murder of upwards of 1.2 Armenian people remains underappreciated in the modern history of crimes against humanity and the ensuing movement to codify and defend human rights. Join us for this co-sponsored webinar with the National Humanities Center as we confront the history of the Armenian Genocide while examining Armenian culture, identity, and influence in the United States.

Primary Source is honored to be the official steward of an exceptional new film for the classroom: Legacy of Courage: Black Changemakers in Massachusetts Past, Present, Future. This 20-minute film—from the Long Road to Justice project–chronicles how African American activists in Massachusetts have used the legal system to pursue freedom and civil rights for over 400 years. Our virtual seminar will feature a scholar talk for wider context, with an introduction to the film and its accompanying Teacher Toolkit developed by Primary Source. A Q&A with the film’s directors will round out our seminar. Together, these elements all highlight the importance of inspiring students through the history of anti-racist activism. The film and teaching toolkit will be posted for free on Primary Source’s website beginning in Fall 2022.
