2014 Black History Month Teacher Workshop

Published by chelsea at 6:50 pm under Spring 2014 Newsletter

CLAS offered a Black History Month workshop for teachers in February 2014 entitled: “Intersections of Black and Latin America: Many Movements, One People.” As many as 25% of Latin Americans have Afro-descendants. In honor of Black History Month, CLAS and MTSU’s Teaching with Primary Sources program collaborated to offer K–12 teachers a workshop examining the intersections of the many movements that make up the diaspora and the historical realities, which unite them. Educators heard presentations by faculty from TSU (Crystal de Gregory) and Vanderbilt (Ruth Hill) and developed plans for their classroom using primary source materials from the Library of Congress.
