Join us for an interactive, in-person teacher workshop to prepare for the arrival of The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection at Holocaust Museum Houston. Participants will receive resources and TEKS-aligned activities to support teaching African American history in grades 6-12. Learn about how a field trip to The Kinsey Collection can enhance student learning and support vital content and skill retention. Provided resources can be used before, during, and/or after a school visit to The Kinsey Collection.

The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection celebrates Black achievement and contribution from 1595 to the present. It will be on view at HMH from January 12-June 23, 2024. School field trips will be available, including limited funding to reimburse the cost of school bus transportation.

Teachers will receive 4 CPE hours for their participation in the workshop.
