Teaching Civil Rights Then and Now
Saturday, May 2, 8:45 am–3:30 pm
Museum of the City of New York

On Saturday, May 2, 2015, the Museum of the City of New York will host the 3rd Annual Teaching Social Activism in the Classroom Conference. Educators are invited to present and participate in this free full-day conference, which will highlight the various tools and techniques used by teachers to engage their students in the history and practice of social change, inspired by the content of the Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition, Activist New York. Educators, activists, and historians will present their work to one another and will discuss the best practices for teaching this important subject to students of all ages.

We also invite you to add your voice to the conversation! How do you teach Civil Rights? How do you introduce students to the past and prepare them for the future? The date of this year's activism conference sits squarely between the 50th anniversaries of Selma and the Voting Rights Act. In honor of this legacy, the conference theme is Teaching Civil Rights: Then and Now. We invite you to learn more about our theme, how to submit a proposal, and how to register. Proposals to present must be submitted by Monday, March, 30.



The Teaching Social Activism conference is made possible by the generous support of the Puffin Foundation Ltd. Activist New York is the inaugural exhibition in The Puffin Foundation Gallery, which is dedicated to the ways in which ordinary New Yorkers have exercised their power to shape the city's and the nation's future.
