A Practical Workshop in Teaching Anti-Racist History: POSTPONED

3rd Annual Program with Teaching Tolerance

A Practical Workshop in Teaching Anti-Racist History: POSTPONED

We are sorry; this event has been postponed.
Quilt with pencil and the word "injustice"

Quilt block designed by Leland, a high school student in a Baltimore Social Justice Sewing Academy workshop. Adapted into a quilt pattern by Melinda Newton.

We are sorry; this event has been postponed.

The University of Virginia is suspending all university-sponsored events that involve more than 100 people. 

Please stay tuned for updates.


This year, we aim to increase teacher engagement by crowd-sourcing compelling learning resources developed by teachers, for teachers. All registrants will have access to a shared folder that will stay "live" at the program, and we will be asking you to submit resources and to share your experiences, success stories, and challenges.

Registration is open!
