        Their History is Our History

        Oftentimes history is viewed as a series of events that happened independently of each other. Through this Slavery by Another Name educational unit, students examine how personal histories overlap within a wider historical narrative to create a web of connection between us. Students will also explore how history can be viewed, perceived, and recollected differently by people and across generations.
