About Our Work in Memphis & Across the Southeast

From Memphis to Chattanooga to Louisville, Facing History & Ourselves’ Southeast Region reaches thousands of educators in public, independent, charter, and religious schools each year. Through Facing History, students become more engaged in academic work and learn to recognize and combat racism, antisemitism, and prejudice in their schools and communities. From the Holocaust, Reconstruction, and the Civil Rights Movement, to current events like Charlottesville and immigration, Facing History & Ourselves helps teachers make complex and difficult subjects relevant and accessible for the next generation.
