For over four hundred years, African American people have left an indelible mark on the history of North America. However, the depth and breadth of this lasting contribution is not fully recognized and taught. Primary Source’s Making Freedom Digital Curriculum illuminates the variety of African American experiences within this history, focusing on the collective efforts to hold America accountable to the ideas of freedom and equality. Join us for this hybrid workshop which explores resistance, agency, and joy within African American history while highlighting lessons, primary sources, and teaching strategies found within the Making Freedom Digital Curriculum.
