The 1619 Curriculum | The 1776 Commission | The 1776 Project: A Difference of More Than 150+ Years

Posted in: Past Events

This event is scheduled for October 29, 2020, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.

The debate over which history to teach in public school is ongoing. In September, 2020 the Trump administration prohibited coverage of anti-racist and racial sensitivity training in federal agencies, criticized the 1616 Project and proposed patriotic education. Then the Administration, through its Secretary of Education lauded the roll out of the 1776 Unites Curriculum. This panel will share where U.S. history lessons begin for them and recommend strategies for learning in home based and school classrooms.
