Teaching Outside the Textbook About the Red Scare: Subversives in Labor Organizing and the Black Freedom Struggle

August 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In this session, participants will experience a mixer lesson that can be used in grade 7+ classrooms. Students meet 27 different targets of government harassment and repression to analyze why disparate individuals might have become targets of the same campaign, determining what kind of threat they posed in the view of the U.S. government. Participants will also be introduced to relevant primary documents from the Tamiment Library at NYU.

Facilitated by Ursula Wolfe-Rocca and Jesse Hagopian, Zinn Education Project Writers and Organizers • Introduction to the primary documents from Tamiment Library by Michael Koncewicz, Michael Nash Archivist & Ewen Center Program Coordinator.
