In 1999, a history teacher in Massachusetts, Scott Culclasure, wrote that because history is our creation, we are responsible to each other for choosing to tell some stories and to leave others untold. In this session we will consider the civic consequences of shifting our historical gaze from pivotal individuals in the Civil Rights Movement to the collective power of ordinary people taking civic action in extraordinary times.
