Training Overview

Does your curriculum rewrite history? Learn how to rectify racist omissions.

As America confronts the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre, many people are just hearing of the destruction of a thriving Black community in 1921. As President Biden said when commemorating this tragedy, “Just because history is silent, it does not mean that it did not take place.”

This is just one example of an omission from common curriculum that fails to accurately and completely teach our country’s historical racist shortcomings. To deepen the cultural competence of your students, you need to cultivate the study of previously excluded events. With summer approaching, now is the perfect time to begin looking at your curriculum for the upcoming year.
