A three-hour program designed for educators who teach in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia will begin with a screening of the abridged classroom version of the Emmy-nominated film Traces of the Trade, followed by a panel discussion led by National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) Director Lonnie Bunch and featuring filmmaker Katrina Browne, co-producer Juanita Brown, and Inheriting the Trade author Thomas DeWolf. Participants will then break into three groups–to be facilitated by Katrina, Juanita, and Tom–where the balance of the workshop will focus on challenges and strategies for effectively teaching about historic slavery and its lingering impacts today in the elementary, middle, and high school classroom.
