Project Details
The Local Black Histories Project is a community-engaged research partnership involving W&M, The Village Initiative, and the WJCC School Division. The project is directed by Omiyẹmi Artisia Green (Africana Studies and Theatre), Monika Gosin (Sociology), and Amy Quark (Sociology) and is a major outcome of their W. Taylor Reveley, III Interdisciplinary Faculty Fellowship. Faculty and students work with community partners to create resources for K-12 teachers to integrate local Black histories in their classrooms. These include performance assessments for elementary, middle, and high school, a collection of oral histories from community members, and an archive of primary documents related to local Black histories.
