The Racial Slavery in the Americas curriculum unit covers more than four centuries. Learn how enslaved people experienced and resisted oppression and how slavery’s legacies have shaped our world today. We’ll explore the student readings, lessons, and videos found in the curriculum and discuss ways to implement them in diverse classroom settings.
