Teaching Reconstruction: A Conversation with Dr. Kidada Williams

In the wake of the Civil War, Americans were faced with the challenge of rebuilding a society that had been divided by slavery and the political upheaval of war. The study of this period in American history is essential to the understanding of citizenship and democracy in the United States today.

Join us in conversation with writer and historian, Dr. Kidada Williams, as we discuss her research on African Americans’ fight for liberty and equality during and after the Civil War and Reconstruction era.

During the webinar, we will:

  • Hear from Dr. Williams about her research on African Americans  “seizing freedom” during the Reconstruction era
  • Engage in a moderated Q&A with Dr. Williams

Captioning will be provided during this webinar, which takes place from 12–1 PM ET/11AM–12 PM CT/ 10–11 AM MT/9–10 AM PT. If this time doesn’t work for your schedule, be sure to register and we’ll notify you once the recording is available on our On-Demand Learning Center
