The launch of the 1619 Project and The 1776 Commission have prompted a public conversation about how to teach the history of race in the United States. At this roundtable, we will discuss the debate generated by both the 1619 Project and the 1776 Commission and explore the difficulty and necessity of teaching U.S. history honestly, sensitively, and culturally responsively. This will be an interactive roundtable with an opportunity for the audience to share their experiences teaching and learning U.S. history.

Participants include Dr. Nicole Jackson (Associate Professor of History at BGSU), Dr. Timothy Messer-Kruse (Professor of Ethnic Studies at BGSU), and Gloria Wu (a K-12 social studies teacher in Toledo Public Schools).

Tuesday, April 13 from 7 – 8:30 p.m.
