About the Event
The Stonewall Riots and Harvey Milk may have become more widely known in US History, but do your students also know about the Lavender Scare, Edith Eyde, Deborah Johnson, and Zandra Rolon? Too often, important events and people in the LGBTQ civil rights movement are left out of textbooks. What happens when we integrate the missing voices of the LGBTQ community into our classrooms and curriculum?
Join Facing History and Ourselves for a conversation with Eric Marcus, host of the award-winning Making Gay History podcast. Making Gay History mines his decades-old audio archive of rare interviews to create intimate, personal portraits of both known and long-forgotten champions, heroes, and witnesses to history. They'll explore the importance of teaching and learning LGBTQ history to create a more inclusive and equitable picture of US History, reflect student identities in the history we teach, and inspire future Upstanders.
During the webinar, they will:
- Explore detailed and intimate interviews of known and forgotten individuals in the LGBTQ civil rights movement and history
- Share resources and tools for educators to teach a more accurate and inclusive history
- Provide interactive strategies for engaging student voices, experiences, and inquiry into the study of history
Captioning will be provided during this webinar, which takes place from 6:30–7:30pm EST. If this time doesn’t work for your schedule, be sure to register and Facing History and Ourselves will notify you once the recording is available on their On-Demand Learning Center. Teachers will be eligible to receive one-hour of professional development credit for participation if you actively watch the webinar. At the conclusion of the webinar, you will be able to download a certificate of completion from the webinar console. Check with your school district in advance of the webinar to ensure that the professional development credit is accepted.
