Teaching my Jim Crow course, and working hard to get students to move through the simplistic notions/reasons for the construction and maintenance of segregation. This is a battle every time I teach it, because we've worked hard to reduce our racial past to soundbites and clichés.

A new series, "Printing Hate," captures the role newspapers had in instigating racial lynchings and massacres from 1865 through the 1960s. The project is from 60 journalism students at several universities, partnering with @HowardCenterUMD. insider.com/newspapers-helpe…

Yup.
School board candidate Karen says she doesn’t want little Kylie (because it’s always Kylie) learning about racism, but what she really doesn’t want is little Kylie leaning that mommy is racist. 🤷🏽‍♂️ #TeachHardHistory, honestly. #CRT #vote
