The Civil Rights Movement: Grassroots Perspectives, 1940-1980

A three-week summer institute for 30 middle and high school educators on the grassroots history of the civil rights movement.

The Civil Rights Movement: Grassroots Perspectives (1940-1980) Summer Institute will invite 30 teachers (grades 7-12) from across the U.S. for a three-week residency at Duke University in July 2020. The institute is designed by a collaborative team of scholars, Civil Rights Movement veterans, and educators from Duke University, the SNCC Legacy Project, and Teaching for Change. Participants will learn the bottom-up history of the Civil Rights Movement and receive resources and strategies to more deeply engage their students so that they see themselves in this movement to expand democracy for all. Participants will have the unique opportunity to learn from the people who made the history and from leading scholars of the era. This is particularly important since many history teachers received their degrees before the publication of critical recent scholarship on the Civil Rights Movement. The institute was offered for the first time in summer 2018.
