The African American Studies Program at Boston University invites you to apply to be a part of a week-long summer workshop on African Americans in Massachusetts: From Slavery to Today, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The workshop will be offered twice in the summer of 2011: from June 20-24 and again from June 27-July 1, 2011. Each week-long workshop will begin on Monday morning and end on Friday evening and will enroll a total of 40 scholars. We welcome applications from K-12 full- and part-time teachers and librarians in public, parochial, private, and charter schools. Scholars will receive a $1,200 stipend from the NEH for their participation. Over the course of the week we will visit sites of African American history and culture across Massachusetts, including the African American Heritage Trail in Boston; the Isaac Royall House & Slave Quarters in Medford; the W.E.B. Du Bois Homesite in Great Barrington; Orchard House, the home of the Alcott family in Concord; and the National Center for Afro-American Artists in Boston. Teachers will also work with primary source historical documents, including the papers of Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.
