The Untold Story: Visual Essays on America's Reconstruction (Book)
Title: The Untold Story: Visual Essays on America's Reconstruction
Editor: J. Brent Morris
Editor: Minuette Floyd
Abstract: Through the generosity of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the University of South Carolina Beaufort hosted a three-week summer institute for 30 K-12 teachers from July 12 - August 1, 2015 as a workshop for educators to learn more 3 about the history of the Reconstruction Era, and to demonstrate how that history has been influenced by events and personalities originating from the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Georgia. Participants created visual essays as final projects for the institute. Staff and visiting faculty were quite impressed at the quality of these works, and twelve are presented in this volume. Together, they shed new light on this critical period of American history, and they all contain the promise that the story of America’s Reconstruction will no longer be neglected in the nation’s primary and secondary schools.
