Introductory Workshop

Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, Legacies

1:00 pm — 2:00 pm
CCSS Conference Session

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.
