Native American and African-American Educational Experiences in Kansas, 1830-1960

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two schoolteachers on Native American and African-American educational experience in Kansas.

In summer 2017, the Spencer Museum of Art, located on the main campus of the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, will host two workshops on " Native American and African American Educational Experiences in Kansas, 1830 to 1960." Drawing on the resources and expertise of the Spencer Museum of Art and the University of Kansas; state and national historic sites; archives; and community members, artists, and scholars, each weeklong workshop will engage national K-12 teachers with the complex history of race relations in American education. Through a comparative study of Native American and African American educational history, workshop participants will gain insights into the distinct yet interwoven cultural narratives that comprise U.S. history.
