Since 2013 the Black Lives Matter Movement has advocated for a variety of social justice issues affecting black people, most notably police brutality. This training will provide teachers with a better understanding on the emergence and development of the movement. We will look at the role of images, police compliance and the impact of Donald Trump’s presidency on Black Lives Matter. In addition, Dr. Nicole Hirschfelder will offer a variety of classroom resources for teachers.
