You can find links to all the resources I included in the "400 Years: Teaching the Brutality, Resistance to, and Legacy of the Transatlantic Slave System in World History" workshop on 10 October 2023. The materials are organized by slide titles.
All members of Liberating Narratives can participate in the live workshop. Members with a paid subscription have access to the resources.
