Your network editor has reposted this from H-Announce. The byline reflects the original authorship.

 

I am developing a proposal for a roundtable on the teaching of African-American history in the #BlackLivesMatter era. I would like the participants to include educators at all levels (K-12, undergraduate, graduate) from multiple institution types (HBCU, SLAC, R1, regional public, charter, etc.). Interests can include any era (or geographical region) of African-American history.
