DAY 1: TOUR OF BLACK LOS ANGELES
From the city’s Afro-Mexican founders to Issa Rae’s groundbreaking Insecure, we explore the history, art, and culture of people of African descent in one of the world’s most influential cities.
DAY 2: FULL DAY WITH DR. DANIEL E. WALKER
Join one of the nation’s most prolific public historians as he takes participants on a deep thematic journey exploring the history, art, and culture of people of African descent in America. From the history of influential African empires and the struggle for freedom and equality, to expressions in literature, music, and art, participants will leave the institute feeling infinitely more comfortable infusing African American content into their standards-based teaching.
