Breaking Bias: Lessons from the Amistad 

January 11, 2021

“My part has been to tell the story of the slave. The story of the master never wanted for narrators.” –Frederick Douglas

This training introduces participants to units one and two in the new guide. The training works to answer the following questions; (1) How can I infuse my curriculum or program with important content about Black history and structural racism? (2) What are effective methods for teaching and talking about Black history and racism? (3) How can I make certain that Black voices and agency are at the center of instruction about Black history and racism? (4) How can I and my students take personal and collective responsibility for standing against racism?

Participants will receive 3 PD credits upon completion of the workshop. You will be required to fill out a short survey after the workshop and will not be given a certificate without completion of the survey. 

This workshop is free for educators. The workshop will last 3 hours.

Please note that this is an online workshop and not an in person training. We will be hosting this event via Zoom. You will need access to a camera and microphone for this workshop. 

We will not have a wait list for our online webinars and workshops. Since spots are very limited, we ask that if you cannot make it to the webinar, you please cancel with us so that others might have the opportunity to attend.
