“Living History” is designed to enrich our educational experience as social studies educators. By inviting speakers who have personally engaged with historical events, the event offers an invaluable opportunity for us to gain firsthand insights into the context, emotions, challenges, and nuances that textbooks often struggle to capture.

What do you think about when you think of Brown v. Board of Education, Topeka? “Living History:” Beyond Black and White is a deeper dive into that complex American story.  Come out to hear Dr. Sherman Hong and Mrs. Shirley Kwan share their experiences as Chinese Americans living in the Delta during segregation and integration from the 1940s to the 1960s.
