Educators, students, administrators, and parents are invited to attend this discussion on Saturday, June 19 from 2-3:30 p.m. Learn about the importance of teaching the Black American perspective of U.S. history, how to be culturally responsive to students of color, and why it’s essential that educators be properly trained to bring this challenging history to their students, with the sensitivity and respect that is required.
