Transatlantic Histories: The United States, South Africa, and Sierra Leone
June 10, 2019
This month, as a part of our three-year Transatlantic Histories program, the Gilder Lehrman Center will be hosting history teachers from South Africa and Sierra Leone, along with partnering teachers in Connecticut, at Yale University to participate in workshops on “The Black Struggle for Freedom and Justice.” The workshop will be taught by Professor Keisha Blain and will include visits to historic sites in Connecticut and New York City, and will culminate with a visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. The Transatlantic Histories program has been made possible through a generous grant from the Robina Foundation.
Over the next several weeks we’ll share highlights of these workshops in this newsletter, as well as on our Twitter and Facebook accounts. You can find out more about the program on Shared Histories.
