Facing History and Ourselves is actively used in history, literature, interdisciplinary, government, and specially designed Facing History electives. In addition to being incorporated into K-12 schools, Facing History is also taught in colleges and universities. Our program associates work with educators to help them use these materials in the most appropriate ways.

We welcome John Amaechi OBE, human rights advocate, psychologist, New York Times best-selling author, and former NBA player. Amaechi is a frequent speaker on issues of identity and inclusion.
In his 2007 New York Times best-selling book Man in the Middle, Amaechi chronicled his life and work, providing distinct lessons to anyone ever told that they were not capable of doing great things. The most important theme Amaechi hoped to illustrate through his personal story of struggle and triumph was that “...despite what we are often told, the most unlikely of people, in the most improbable of circumstances can become extraordinary.”
