Teach Truth Day of Action

Teach Truth Day of Action

From the way Dr. Cameron was inspired by Yad Vashem to his steadfast commitment to sharing his story of surviving a lynching at 16 years old, historical truth-telling has been a central theme of America’s Black Holocaust Museum from the very beginning. In honor of ABHM’s mission and Dr. Cameron’s legacy, we have partnered with the Zinn Education Project on their 4th annual Teach Truth Day of Action along with hundreds of other educators and organizations throughout the country.

Our participation in Teach Truth Day of Action is intended to show commitment to sharing a more comprehensive exploration of our collective U.S. history. It is vital we have a greater understanding of our history so that young people have the tools to form a more just society.

At ABHM on Saturday, June 8th, we will have a table with several materials related to Teach Truth Day of Action and the Zinn Education Project. We will also have a special drop-in tour at noon included with the price of admission. The tour will focus on the importance of historical truth-telling and how our museum has been continually contributing to our vision of a more just and equitable society. We hope you can join us for this important day!

The event is finished.
