Teacher Cadre #2: Teaching a Difficult Past – The Holocaust and Jim Crow
November 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Birmingham Holocaust Education Center
Robby Ballard, The Altamont School
With new resources surfacing including the New York Times’ “1619 Project” and the Equal Justice Initiative’s “Legacy Memorial”, we are all faced with re-examining our past. So, too, with the Holocaust as the the USHMM unveils it’s “America and the Holocaust” exhibit.
This discussion will focus on how we teach a difficult past and how do we responsibly address both of these pasts that are so often compared.
CEU Credits (2 hours) will be available.
