The Civil Rights Movement: Grass Roots Perspectives

A three-week institute for thirty school teachers on the history of the civil rights movement at the grassroots level.

The "Challenging the Master Narrative of the Civil Rights Movement" Summer Institute will invite thirty teachers from across the U.S. for a three-week residency at Duke University in July of 2018. The institute is designed by a collaborative team of scholars, veterans, and educators from Duke, the SNCC Legacy Project, Tougaloo College, and Teaching for Change. Participants will learn the bottom-up history of the Civil Rights Movement and receive resources and strategies to bring it home to their students. They will have the unique opportunity to learn from the people who made the civil rights movement happen and from the leading scholars of the era. This is particularly important since many history teachers received their degrees before the publication of recent scholarship on the history of the civil rights movement from the bottom up.
