Why Are LGBTQ+ Historical Figures Missing From Our School's Curriculum? - SoJust Speaker Series
The time to unerase history is now!
"If you were to look only at US history textbooks, you wouldn't know LGBTQ+ people helped build our nation. And that's a problem.
History UnErased (HUE) is solving that problem by putting LGBTQ+ history in its rightful place--the classroom--with our groundbreaking Intersections and Connections digital curriculum for K-12 schools."
History UnErased is founded by award-winning classroom teachers who bring decades of experience into the development of inclusive curriculum and educational trainings. HUE's efforts brings LGBTQ+ U.S. history into the mainstream curriculum and ensures that all students, today and beyond, learn about and understand a more complete story of America and a more empowering reflection of who "We the people" includes, allowing for genuine understanding and equality to become a reality for LGBTQ+ people.The HUE team works in partnership with expert historians and archivists, the Library of Congress, New York City Department of Education, Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, ONE Archives Foundation at USC Libraries, New York Public Library, National Park Service, and more!
Join us for a virtual presentation by Kathleen Barker,a researcher, content developer, and professional development facilitator at History UnErased. Find out what you can do to help their mission!
