Dear H-SHGAPE subscribers,

 

We invite you to head over to read the latest post on the SHGAPE Blog, "Teaching Digital Literacy through a Walking Tour about the 1906 Atlanta Race Riot" by Dr. Sara Harwood.

In 1906, Atlanta experienced a race riot that led to the death of dozens of Black Atlanta residents and fundamentally reshaped Black neighborhoods and businesses. In this post, Dr. Sara Harwood discusses her experience developing a self-guided online walking tour with Georgia State University students that confronts this dark legacy. She also offers insight into the exciting digital history work happening in the Atlanta area.

Sincerely
Chelsea
