Join the Museum for a stimulating discussion about the importance of teaching the history of Reconstruction in the U.S. The panel will explore how and why this era is critical to understanding the U.S. then and now. During the conversation, panelists will discuss how organizations are working to re-shape the narrative as well as share ideas and resources to support classroom educators to consider how this important era can help students compare and interpret many of the current questions of society.

Featuring Jesse Hagopian (Zinn Education Project), Jeremy Nesoff (Facing History & Ourselves), Kurt Russell (2022 National Teacher of the Year) and Dr. Kidada Williams (historian, author, and host of Seizing Freedom podcast) with hosts Paul Gardullo and Candra Flanagan
