We celebrated our 30th anniversary with Culture & Cuisine at Darryl’s by connecting with friends and colleagues while enjoying southern cuisine, live jazz, and a presentation by Malcolm Cawthorne, noted Brookline educator and METCO Coordinator, on Using African American History to Mobilize Student Activism.
Through Malcolm’s presentation (pictured on the right), we acknowledged that African American history is American history and that teaching the two in schools as separate stories isolates children who would otherwise see themselves in the American narrative. He spoke about the critical role that student activism has played both historically and today, citing the 1960 Greensboro (NC) student sit-ins that catalyzed the civil rights movement and led to a legacy of African American student empowerment and activism. Malcolm highlighted the need for all students to understand the full context of their heritage and understand that the story is still being written and that they are the authors.
Primary Source is proud of our work preparing teachers to educate students on the full, inclusive story of American history. We are grateful for the support you provide and your commitment to our mission.
