September 13, 2022 | 7:30pm - 8:30pm
On September 13th (7:30pm-8:30pm) Project co-directors Jay Shockley and Ken Lustbader, and project manager Amanda Davis, will join friends and collaborators at History UnErased for a virtual interactive multimedia soirée and discussion!
History UnErased is an education nonprofit founded in 2015 by veteran classroom teachers to provide K-12 schools with curriculum and training to teach LGBTQ-inclusive history as it intersects with race, gender, and nationality within the mainstream curriculum.
In 2017, the Project was contacted by History UnErased about using its interactive map content as a curriculum tool to further the Project’s goal of bringing LGBTQ historic places to life to reveal a broader story of American history and culture. The Project subsequently presented its work to public school teachers at an NYC Department of Education conference, and began site visits at area schools to bring LGBTQ-centered history around arts and culture, education, science, and more, into the classroom.
Register now to learn more about this history, and to meet people doing vital work toward a mission shared by the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project: Making an invisible history visible.
And don’t forget to come prepared with your favorite sips and snacks!
