Event: Teaching African American History

National Association of Scholars

States, school districts, and teachers all want to know how to teach African American history as part of the broader narrative of our nation's character.

In this webinar, we will explore exemplary Americans like Benjamin Banneker, Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Clarence Thomas, and how we can best teach about them. The panelists of this webinar will also discuss how state standards, lesson plans, and scholars can work together to promote the proper teaching of African American history.

Join the National Association of Scholars on Tuesday, October 24, at 2 pm ET for "Teaching African American History."

This event will feature William Allen, Emeritus Dean and Professor at Michigan State University; Benjamin Jones, former Secretary of Education for South Dakota and Director of South Dakota State Historical Society; and Ian Rowe, a Senior Fellow at American Enterprise Institute and writer for the 1776 Unites Campaign.
