On March 24 teachers in grades k-12 received professional development on the Amistad Mandate hosted by Dr. Davida Lindsay-Harewood. Dr. Lindsay- Harewood is recognized as one of the most knowledgeable individuals in the state in articulating the importance of insuring that African American history is taught in an inclusive way by establishing the connection between American History and the African American experience since the founding of our nation. Dr. Lindsay-Harewood has been working closely with EPS educators and interested stakeholders from the community to ensure that our Amistad curriculum provides rich learning opportunities for our students. Below are the different training segments.
