A four-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university faculty to explore African-American history in rural New England.

The project aims to introduce college teachers to new and recent scholarship and methodology on African American biography, development and consequences of using local history, and to facilitate the development of curriculum and teaching strategies for incorporating this history into American history curriculum and related areas of instruction. The central goal of this proposal is to create a nationally replicable model for developing African American studies curricula that link locally significant figures with broader currents in American history.
