Classroom Toolkits

Georgetown University history professor Dr. Marcia Chatelain created the #FergusonSyllabus in response to police brutality against Blacks by collecting teaching materials for educators on issues of race, civil rights, history, and police enforcement. Other crowdsourced syllabi soon followed, such as #BaltimoreSyllabus and #CharlestonSyllabus. Similarly, Black Lives Matter and Race Forward created toolkits for community members with the intent of not just education, but to encourage active involvement and agency for change.
