From Frederick Douglass to Ta-Nehisi Coates: A workshop series exploring race using texts as a window into history with Susan Stein

This workshop uses as a lens Lee’s documentary on the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing of 1963 and King’s eulogy, photography, and song to explore segregation, civil rights, and the often violent struggle for freedom.

Join resident teaching artist Susan Stein to explore and analyze literature created by African-American writers and thinkers, as well as works that silence African-American voices. We will read excerpts from well-known and lesser-known texts and use them to discuss the legacies of enslavement. These workshops and the lessons we create for our students will aim to foster empathy and empower teachers to bring their students into these vital conversations.
