The Yale and Slavery Research Project: Student Perspectives

Thursday, February 25, 2021

The Shared Histories Symposium is designed to share the results of the three-year Gilder Lehrman Center Shared Histories Africa Institute, funded by the Robina Foundation, with a broad base of teachers and students in New England. The Shared Histories program provides ongoing opportunities for teachers and students in the United States and Africa to discuss shared concerns about equity, representation, and human rights. Secondary school teachers and administrators; university faculty, students, and staff; members of the general public are invited to participate in this series of online webinars. 

During this symposium, U.S. teachers who have been working with South African and Sierra Leonean teachers, along with a selection of their students, will present classroom projects generated from the GLC Shared Histories Africa Institute. This program is sponsored by the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition at the MacMillan Center at Yale University, with support from the Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Memorial Fund.
