Civics with a focus on Race- we talk about U.S. politics and government every week.

Class experience

US Grade 10 - 12
I HAD to study history at Hampton University (B.A) and U.S. History at Southern Methodist University (M.A. abt) because I found the complex topics and dynamic issues endlessly fascinating. My education allowed me to study questions of Race, Class and Gender extensively, topics that should ALWAYS figure prominently when understanding The United States. Teaching high school and college history felt more like a prize than a job as I loved sharing our nation's struggles and stories with young learners and challenging them to think critically. I have decades of experience doing this and excel at leading conversations about racism, race relations, and people. While I am no longer in the classroom I still find opportunities to guide people through the topics and timelines of America from time to time, and this is one of those times. Teaching this topic to young people gives me hope and brings me so much happiness- our children are amazing!
I have been teaching classes about politics and race on Outschool for quite some time. Please message me if you have any questions about my qualifications.
Race relations in America cannot be understood without understanding the violence that often comes with enforcing racist control. Learners should be prepared to view troubling images- although these images are not displayed without advanced warning. Parents should also be prepared to continue discussing these sensitive topics at home and are welcome to reach out to me for help with this as needed. Primary and Secondary sources may contain harsh language.
Newspapers are the "first draft of history" because these secondary sources are often the first telling of events. 
In this class, learners will consider primary sources such as speeches, interviews, letters and posts of various kinds as well as widely read academic journals and major news sources such as legacy wire services and well-regarded newspapers such as The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post. 
Please message me with any questions about sources.

Why not use the momentum of memory- or lessons of the past- to make a better future?

I write to you from my Carolina home where I am reading, listening and talking about the past, present and future. Although I am sometimes saddened, I mostly...
