I teach AP European History at a school where our student population is 20% black and 10% biracial. I have been teaching Euro for two years and I'm trying to find ways to incorporate history that will be more meaningful for my black and biracial students in a European history course. I use McKay and have incorporated their readings on Rebecca Protten and Olaudah Equiano and I have had a discussion on the Windrush generation in England. I am wondering how any of you address the history of nonwhites in Europe beyond the slave trade in your survey courses. I would especially appreciate any suggestions of questions that I could use to center a class discussion and/or engaging readings at the undergraduate level.
