Using Facing History’s resource book Race and Membership in American History: The Eugenics Movement, this seminar will explore how Americans defined citizenship and membership in the early part of the 20th century and the echoes and legacies of this movement today.

In the early 1900s, many people believed that eugenics, or "race science," was a progressive solution to social problems. Followers of eugenics argued that protecting "racial purity" was essential in creating a healthy nation. In the United States and around the world, eugenics had a profound impact on educational and public policies.
