Muslims in Brooklyn: Using Archives to Foster Civic Engagement

Open to: All Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Join us for the first in a series of professional learning events for educators centered on Muslims in Brooklyn, a public history project by Brooklyn Public Library’s Center for Brooklyn History (CBH) designed to amplify the stories of Brooklyn’s Muslim communities.   Through a conversation with project lead Zaheer Ali and educator, Emily Potter-N’Diaye, participants will gain insight on the following: how oral histories and archival material can empower us to explore issues of identity and belonging.

During this professional learning session, CBH educators will model lesson plans that will allow participants to bring these themes into the classroom and teach with any oral history collection.
