Harlem’s Education Movements: Changing the Civil Rights Narrative
This institute, for middle and high school teachers, expands and revises traditional civil rights narratives through a focus on Harlem's rich, varied, and enduring struggle for educational opportunities and justice from the 1930s into the 1970s. Through the rich archival collections of the Schomburg Center, the powerful stories of movement veterans, incisive lectures and discussions with leading scholars of the era, and in-depth explorations of Harlem's urban landscape, participants will learn the history of educational activism in Harlem and receive resources and strategies to bring to their students and communities.
