Civil Rights Fellowship

The TPS Civil Rights Fellowship is a regional event hosted by the Teaching with Primary Sources partners from Mars Hill University, Middle Tennessee State University, and the University of South Carolina. This fellowship will include a selected cohort of 18 middle school and high school educators (six from each state). Over the course of one and half years, the cohort will study various aspects of the long struggle for civil rights, including the history and repercussions of slavery, the Civil War and Reconstruction era, the Jim Crow period, and the modern Civil Rights movement. The final phase of this fellowship will involve a mini-conference in which the fellowship cohort will present for other teachers, and learn from expert educators about other topics related to civil rights.
