The coming week won't be any less busy. Basket orders to complete. Prints and illustrations to continue working on. Final summer vacation drop-ins. Prep for autumn workshops (a new location in the not so distant future). This in addition to TEFL day job, home commitments, and a brief trip out of town.
For the coming weekend I planned on staging an event in Detroit. I put myself on the volunteer roster to speak about truth in education for the Zinn Education Project, but plans have changed, because something else has come up for my husband and I to be busy with here.
Otherwise, I could have had live video content from Detroit where I wanted to speak about Freedom Riders at the Birwood Wall. Kids need to learn about the other Hamilton, and not just the usual suspects (Martin, Harriet, Frederick, Rosa, and now John). But I'll promote ZEP on Facebook and send you links to whatever I can. For starters, I'll include some...for you...here.
The truth is out there. I guess we just have to have the courage to include it in the stories and histories we teach and tell it, right?
