WEEK LONG CIVIL RIGHTS WORKSHOP FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGE FACULTY
Landmarks of American Democracy from Freedom Summer to the Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike will allow you to meet participants in both the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement and the Sanitation Workers Strike, visit the key locations, and hear from the leading scholars on these subjects. We will spend several days in Mississippi, travel through the Delta, and then end in Memphis. It is an exciting program and we focus on the teaching of these movements in ways that engage our students.
The National Endowment for Humanities sponsors a series of one-week workshops on Landmarks of American Democracy across the country during the summer. They pay the costs of the workshop and stipends to aid in transportation and miscellaneous costs for faculty to participate. Different disciplines in the humanities and social sciences are welcome as are full and part-time teachers. The only requirement is that you will be teaching at a community college in the next year.
Application guidelines, instructions and forms, as well as our tentative syllabus are available to download at the Hamer Institute’s website at: www.jsums.edu/hamer.institute.
