Training Overview

Teaching Black history and today's laws. Discover strategies to convey the truth authentically.

New critical race theory laws have scared and confused teachers. They wonder how to teach Black history authentically without violating the statutes.  With nearly 200 “backlash bills” introduced across the country regulating how issues surrounding racism can be discussed in the classroom, teachers need to know how to get around this “educational gag order.”

Students need to learn about Black history in America, so you must find a way to balance comprehensive instruction with legal compliance this school year. Despite the flurry of recent legislation and critical race theory bans, you can still cover this essential subject—it is possible to create a brave and safe space where your students can learn the truth.

  • What assumptions are associated with those historically marginalized?
  • How do privileges, power, and oppression operate historically?
  • What systems that persist today sustain inequity?
  • How can you teach when critical race theory has been banned?
