Civil Rights in Ohio
Ohio has been both a beacon of freedom in the struggle for African-American civil rights and a center of racial backlash. This seminar will examine both of these facets of Ohio’s civil rights struggle, from Sojourner Truth and the Underground Railroad to the political careers of Carl and Louis Stokes and beyond.
This program will be conducted as a discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.
