Two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers on slavery and African American life in colonial New England.

The Deerfield Teachers’ Center of the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, a nationally recognized professional development provider, seeks $169,961 for two Landmarks Workshops for K-12 teachers July 7-12 & July 21-26, 2019. "African Americans in the Making of Early New England" will take place in the Old Deerfield Village Historic Landmark District and focuses on its 23 African American historic sites, the Royall House & Slave Quarters in Medford, MA, Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth, NH, and sites along the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire. This workshop brings a wide range of primary sources along with secondary interpretations and lectures by specialists providing tools for K-12 educators to engage their students in learning about African Americans’ life experiences in early New England. Knowing this history is an important tool for building cross-racial and cross-cultural understanding in the classroom.
