Race and Place: African Americans in Washington, DC from 1800-1954

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: An Examination of African Americans in Washington, DC from 1800-1954. In the workshops, a diverse group of educators from throughout the country will explore topics that are rooted in the District of Columbia but also have broad national significance: Urban Enslavement, Resistance to Slavery in the Nation's Capital, The Process of Emancipation, Elizabeth Keckly: An African-American Businesswoman in Civil War Washington, Institutions of Reconstruction, Frederick Douglass and the Politics of Reconstruction, and 20th Century Community, Activism, and Desegregation. The workshops' major components are: assigned readings, lectures and discussions, field studies at historic places, curricular best practices, pedagogical resources and curriculum projects. Race and Place will provide educators with intellectual content, techniques, and tools for humanities-based inquiry in the classroom.
