Race in the Classroom: Teaching Civil Rights


Join hosts Leticia Wiggins and Patrick Potyondy in a conversation with historians—and award-winning teachers—Kevin Boyle, Stephanie Shaw, and Hasan Kwame Jeffries about the importance and difficulties of teaching race and civil rights in the classroom. “Learning about the Civil Rights Movement,” Boyle declares, “really explores the tension between America’s promise and the reality of the United States.” The first part of this conversation, referred to in the current episode, can be found in our previous podcast, “Putting Race on Display: The National Civil Rights Museum.”
