What Your Textbooks Didn’t Teach You Workshop

The intentional and systematic erasure of the black American experience from curricula around the nation continues to contribute to generational trauma and has impacted the sociopolitical life of black bodies in America. This workshop aims to dig deeper into historical topics that are typically left out of US textbooks.  Led by Gallatin professors Millery Polyné and Michael Dinwiddie, this workshop will unpack these topics to gain a better understanding of a history that has been deliberately censored over the years. Join the Gallatin student body along with our distinguished faculty for this captivating event you won’t want to miss.

Presented as a part of Gallatin’s Black History Month programming.
