This summer, 35 teachers from across the nation will be selected for a seminar on civil rights and politics at the University of Kansas. Shawn Leigh Alexander, director of the Langston Hughes Center at KU, hopes that the teachers can return to their students with a new understanding of the civil rights movement.
The seminar is titled "Presidential Politics, Civil Rights and the Road to Brown." Applications for the seminar will be accepted until February 1. More information is available online at gilderlehrman.com or by calling the Langston Hughes Center at the University of Kansas (785-864-5044).
