Birmingham Civil Rights Institute Event- Japanese Internment during World War II
See details from Victoria Stephens at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute about their upcoming event on April 29th below:
"My name is Victoria Stephens. I'm the Education Assistant with Ahmad Ward at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. We are having an upcoming event that you and other teachers like yourself may be interested in, On April 29th we have a workshop called the Densho teacher workshop that will discuss and examine racism and discrimination through the lens of the Japanese Internment that occurred during World War II. We are looking to have about 25 teachers. We would like to limit it to middle and high school teachers teaching history, social studies, and language arts. Because it is a free event, first come, first serve. Teachers will however, need to register. I will attach the flyer in this email with the website needed to register at. Teachers will receive a $100 stipend in addition to receiving professional (CEU) credit. There will be a guest speaker the day before on the 28th in connection with the main workshop on the 29th. You will also need to register for this event which can be done on our website at bcri.org. We look forward to seeing you there!"
