Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers on the African-American community in Massachusetts and the role of New England in African-American history.

The African American Studies Program at Boston University requests funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities in support of two Landmarks of American History and Culture summer workshops that will investigate the place of the African American community in Massachusetts. This program will bring together teachers in grades K-12 from across the United State to explore the many and varied ways in which African American culture has made an impact on the New England landscape. The workshops will focus on how slavery and abolition, citizenship, literature, and politics in Massachusetts have affected the lives of African Americans. The approach is cross-disciplinary, and will involve experts from a variety of backgrounds, including history, art, museum studies, anthropology, archaeology, and literature.
