UCBHSSP invites Bay Area educators to join us in participating in a nation-wide campaign to support history teachers in making curricular choices that engage students in conversation about the history of race, justice, and oppression in the history of what is now the United States.
In solidarity with Zinn Education, Black Lives Matter at School, and African American Policy Forum, we invite you (and friends or colleagues) to visit a location in your community that speaks to a piece of history threatened by recent legislation to limit topics discussed in history classrooms. Take a photo with a sign that reads #TeachTruth and share it with us.
How can you participate?
- Post your photo to social media between 8/27 and 8/29 with the hashtag #TeachTruth and tag @ucbhssp on twitter or @chssp on instagram.
- Send us the photo (with information about the location) and we will share it on our twitter feed. Upload Photo Here by 8/25.
- More ideas on how to participate.
We will post all images shared with us to the UCBHSSP twitter feed in order to show the commitment of Bay Area educators to #TeachTruth.
