A Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action Event

This virtual interactive discussion will grow our SOE community’s awareness of local Black history, focusing in particular on residential patterns of segregation, integration and gentrification; and schooling experiences of access, discrimination and activism. An archive of digital resources will be provided before the event that builds from the Living Oral History Project Digital Collection that the African American Cultural and Historical Museum (AACHM) of Washtenaw County has designed in collaboration with the Ann Arbor District Library. The resources will be curated to reveal primary artifacts that illuminate voices and experiences of the local Black community, in particular with regard to residential patterns and schooling.

We ask attendees to engage asynchronously with the artifacts (available starting Thursday, January 28: https://bit.ly/39cuNVn) before attending the synchronous session on Thursday, February 4, from 12:00–1:00 pm ET—where we will learn about the perspective and experience of local Black community members associated with the AACHM. Dr. Kimberly Ransom, U-M Postdoctoral Fellow at CREATE Center, with expertise in historiography and Black communities, will support the audience's learning.

Zoom link available to all who register.
