Seizing the Moment: Teaching Race and Racism Today with Dr. Hasan Jeffries

February 12, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Dr. Hasan Jeffries, editor of Understanding and Teaching the Civil Rights Movement, a collection of essays by leading civil rights scholars and teachers that explores how to teach civil rights history accurately and effectively, and host of the podcast “Teaching Hard History,” a production of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance division, for a teacher professional development session followed by his lecture, “(Re)Making History: Memory, Mythmaking, and the Civil Rights Movement.”
