Concord’s African American History Goes to School

The Concord Education Fund (CEF) granted $16,000 this past spring to a team of teachers led by Robbins House board member Johanna Glazer for curriculum development work on African American history and updating the material in the 1976 book, Concord: Its Black History. The Concord and Concord-Carlisle school systems have committed to funding the website development pieces of this project. This grant also serves as a match for educational resources for our Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS) grant.

Teachers, Concord Museum Education members and Robbins House Humanities Director Elon Cook and Programming Chair Jayne Gordon are led by CCHS teacher and TRH Board Member Johanna Glazer in a discussion about incorporating local African American history into school curricula.
