This unit provides a wide-ranging overview of racial slavery in the Americas and the opportunity for students to consider how the past shapes the present.
Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, Legacies
The virtual workshop introduces the free Choices curriculum, Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies, which places racial slavery at the center of the Atlantic World’s economy and explores the resulting legacies of anti-black racism that are part of the structure of today’s society. Participants examine the readings, lessons, and videos that explore how the past shapes the present on these critical issues.
NOTE: This conference session will take place from 4-5 pm PST (not EST like most of our other online workshops and webinars).
This virtual workshop is part of the California Council for the Social Studies 2021 virtual conference.
All participants receive a free Digital Editions license to the unit, valid until September 30, 2021.
This workshop is appropriate for high school history and other social studies educators, including IB and AP educators. High school humanities teachers often use our materials and are also invited to attend.
