We Shall Remain is a five-part television series that shows how Native people valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture.
John L. Loeb, Jr. has a story to tell. Actually, he has many stories to tell: scion of a storied family in American finance, tireless philanthropist and patron of culture, Ambassador to Denmark in the Reagan administration, advisor and trustee and board member to a host of institutions, honored recipient of countless service awards and recognitions.
Presented by Facing History and Ourselves in partnership with the George Washington Institute for Religious Freedom, the Give Bigotry No Sanction project, is anchored in George Washington’s 1790 Letter to the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island—a foundational document of religious tolerance. The project inspires thoughtful conversations about matters of religious freedom in our increasingly diverse society.
The documents compiled in this collection are suggested for use within the lessons on our Reconstruction era website. Here you will find primary source historical documents and images that can be used as handouts in your classroom. For additional primary source material, you can see our complete unit on this history, The Reconstruction Era and the Fragility of Democracy.
Facing History and Ourselves has created a suite of resources for our educator audience that focuses on the letter exchange between George Washington and the Hebrew congregation of Newport, RI. Lesson plans, videos, and much more will help teachers bring a study of the letter exchange and the issues surrounding it into their classrooms.
