This presentation was given at the NCSS (National Council for the Social Studies) Conference in Seattle, WA, and at the CASE (Council on American Studies Education) Conference at the Art Institute in Chicago by Thomas E. Kucharski and Spiro Bolos, both of New Trier High School.
Using US History, Michelle Alexander's recently published book, The New Jim Crow, and 20th century African-American responses to racism, we will examine strategies for our students' social/political engagement with racism.
