Black History Month 2014 Workshop
Intersections of Black and Latin America: Many Movements, One People
Wednesday, February 5th; 9am-3pm; Vanderbilt Campus
Afro-descendants in Latin America make up over 25% of the region’s population; as many as one in four Latin Americans have African ancestors. In honor of Black History Month, CLAS and MTSU’s Teaching with Primary Sources program have collaborated to offer K-12 teachers a workshop examining the intersections of the many movements which make up the diaspora and the historical realities which unite them. Educators will hear presentations by TSU and Vanderbilt faculty, as well as work to develop plans for their classroom using primary source materials from the Library of Congress. Curriculum materials will be provided. Sign up here.
