Two one-week workshops for 100 school teachers on slavery, emancipation, Reconstruction, and segregation in Washington, D. C.

The National Trust will offer two six-day teacher workshops in Washington, DC entitled "Race and Place: African Americans in Washington, DC from 1800-1954." The workshops will promote thoughtful investigations of four crucial periods in American history - pre-Civil War, Civil War, Reconstruction, and Segregation - by exploring the experiences of African Americans in the District of Columbia. Within each period, Race and Place will explore topics that are rooted in the District but also have broad national significance: The Landscape of Urban Enslavement and Resistance to Slavery in the Nation's Capital; Perspectives on Emancipation: Elizabeth Keckly and Abraham Lincoln; Frederick Douglass in Washington: Politics and Institutions of Reconstruction; and Community, Education and Activitism in the Segregated Washington. Workshop participants will visit landmark historic sites, participate in lecture and discussion sessions, exchange best practices and develop curriculum projects.
