Breaking Bias: Lessons from the Amistad 

January 10, 2022

“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?

This workshop is free for educators. Participants will receive 3 PD credits upon completion of this three hour 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. 

Please note that this is an online interactive workshop that will be hosted via Zoom. You will need access to a camera and microphone in order to participate.

"NO SHOW" Policy: If you register and do not attend the workshop, we will notify you that you have been placed on the "No Show" list. Should this occur THREE times, you will be removed from our email list and all future registrations will be canceled. 

Since spots are very limited, we ask that if you cannot make it to the training, you please cancel with us up to the day before the training so that others might have the opportunity to attend and you not be placed on the "No Show" list.
