“The Gilder Lehrman Center is honored to have been awarded a CT Humanities Planning Grant,” said Michelle Zacks, Associate Director. “This award will allow GLC to work with academic experts as well as teachers and students throughout the state to develop professional development resources designed to help Connecticut teachers address the vital mandate of treating African American and Latinx history as absolutely central to the history of the United States. As the nation engages in a long overdue reckoning with the persistent legacies of slavery and structural racism, we are grateful to CT Humanities for their support in helping the GLC and our partners undertake this important endeavor.”
