The National Resource Centers on Canada is inviting all K-12 educators to participate in two free webinars on Black Canadian history and pedagogy. The two sessions will be hosted by Natasha Henry, award winning curriculum designer and historian.
The first session, “’I Had Heard that Canada Was a Land of Liberty’: African Americans Pursue Freedom in Canada During the 19th Century,” takes place 7 p.m. ET April 27. The session will explore how Black settlers defined the idea of freedom and the ways they agitated for equality and full freedom in their daily lives. Online registration for the first session is free and available now.
The second session, “Ideas, Pedagogy and Resources for Teaching African-North American History,” is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET April 28. Participants will learn how to teach more fully and factually about African-North American history in the founding and development of North America through an anti-racist lens. Online registration for the second session is free and available now.
