Meetings, events or activities that will be held exclusively online or via telephone conference.
Event Details:Virginia Africana, Virginia Humanities and the Alexandria Black History Museum present a webinar with Ed Ayers and Annie Evans. This is the third webinar in the Virginia Africana series called Amplifying the Silences in African History. The era of Reconstruction is hard to teach, in part because it’s complicated and in part because it is habitually portrayed as a failure. Seeing the decade from the perspective of the four million Americans who made themselves free, however, opens exciting new possibilities for teaching and engagement. An array of tools from New American History—Bunk, BackStory, Seizing Freedom, Learning Resources, and Southern Journey—can help do that.
Audience:Anyone may attend
