Teaching of Slavery

In Spotlight on May 18, 2017 by Randolph Hollingsworth Tagged: ,

Eleven graduate students across the nation were selected recently for research fellowships by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance project. The fellowships are part of a multiyear initiative to improve the teaching of slavery in K-12 schools across the nation. The fellows curate historical documents and other teaching materials on American slavery to provide teachers with a resource of free and well-researched materials to use in the classroom.

Three graduate students working with Dr. Kathy Swan at the University of Kentucky College of Education – Carly Muetterties, Ryan Lewis and Kenny Stancil – are part of the cohort. Swan serves on the advisory board for the Teaching Tolerance project, and is the national fellows coordinator.
