A four-week school teacher institute for twenty-five participants to explore African American political history from the nineteenth century to the present.

The HistoryMakers Summer Institute will bring together 25 high school teachers from around the country and notable African American political history scholars for four weeks of intense study on the development of African American political history. The ultimate goal of the Institute is to incorporate African American political history into the larger scope of American political history. The Institute will incorporate oral history as a teaching and learning method that is useful for engaging students. Oral history is also especially important to this Institute as it has been one of the primary ways of capturing the history of African Americans. The Institute will also introduce and familiarize teachers with new teaching and learning technologies such as The HistoryMakers digital video oral history archive thus preparing teachers to produce students with 21st century learning skills.
