Join us to explore the wide-ranging curriculum unit, Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies, which is a perfect fit for any U.S. or world history course.

It is most appropriate for any educator who will be teaching about the history of the Atlantic world slave trade and its legacies today, and anyone who is looking for new lessons, readings, and videos to supplement or enhance their teaching.
