Racial Slavery in the Americas

8:00 am — 9:00 am
NCCSS Conference Session

How did enslaved people experience and resist slavery, and how have the legacies of racial slavery shaped the world today? Join the Choices Program at the North Carolina Council for the Social Studies conference to explore the student readings, lessons, and short videos from our Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies curriculum unit. Lessons on the human geography of the transatlantic slave trade; data, primary source, and art analysis; Juneteenth; reparative justice; and public memorials are included in the unit.
