Four workshops on the history of Petersburg, aimed at developing a model for teaching local history in a global context.

VIrginia State University proposes a collaborative effort between University faculty and staff, community leaders in the City of Petersburg, the Governor's School and outside scholars to develop a program on Race and the African American History in the Context of the Atlantic World - Case Study Petersburg, VA. Our goal is to create a field of specialization for the VSU Graduate Program in History. Significant resources, instructional materials and pedagogical approaches will also be made available to regional k-12 schools and scholars worldwide through a newly created website. Petersburg represents an illuminating case study showing, in an international context, the development of race relations and the African American experience in the U.S.
