A peaceful and prosperous American future must be built on a shared understanding of our past that is accurate and truthful, but also celebratory and aspirational.
The prevailing narrative of racial grievance has been corrupting the instruction of American history and the humanities for many decades, but has accelerated dangerously over the past year.
The most damaging effects of such instruction fall on lower income minority children, who are implicitly told that they are helpless victims with no power or agency to shape their own futures.
That is why 1776 Unites’ offers a free high-school curriculum based on the “Woodson Principles” of Competence, Integrity, Transparency, Resilience, Witness, Innovation, Inspiration, Agency, Access, and Grace.
Join us for a session where you will learn what the 1776 Unites curriculum is and how these lesser-known stories from Black History can inform and inspire students of all backgrounds.
