Quakertown Stories

The development of interdisciplinary courses and civic engagement activities focused on the history of the African American community of Quakertown.

Quakertown Stories is an interdisciplinary curricular project with three major goals: 1) To foster civic engagement by creating a series of courses that implement place-based research assignments focused on Quakertown, a displaced freedmen community in Denton, TX; 2) To facilitate dialogue between the university and Denton community about Quakertown and how it has shaped present day Denton through panel discussions and a student-led public Town Hall; 3) To build on previous programs to establish an ongoing working group to support faculty in designing courses that integrate place-based research and other experiential learning opportunities into their classes.
