University of South Carolina, Columbia (Columbia, SC 29208-0001)
Joseph Brent Morris (Project Director: March 2014 to May 2016)
America's Reconstruction: The Untold Story

A three-week institute for thirty school teachers on the history of Reconstruction and its aftermath in South Carolina, Georgia, and the Sea Islands.

This three-week institute will bring (30) k-12 teachers together from across the country to learn more about one of the most neglected and misunderstood periods in our nation’s history, and how that history has been shaped by episodes emerging from the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Georgia. History will be interspersed with literature, and visual essays to demonstrate and provide a rich interdisciplinary experience. Three broad topics over the course of the institute will include: A prelude to Reconstruction, Reconstruction and its Aftermath, and Historical Memory and the Modern Civil Rights Movement. Each topic will cover significant issues, critical episodes, and turning points in American history. The actions and writings of key individuals and their impact on Reconstruction will also be examined.
