“Teacher Training that Inspires” is a series of sessions led by scholars/historians from the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH). Exploring the writings by and about Frederick Douglass and also the places associated with his life and work, these ASALH training sessions provide a valuable tool for teaching, learning, and discovering one’s community in new ways. There is a 50 person capacity for each session. It is encouraged but not required to attend all 3 sessions. This series of sessions will culminate in a free field trip to Washington, DC to visit the Frederick Douglass Home and Carter G. Woodson Historic Site on Saturday May 5th (transportation & snacks provided). ASALH is working in cooperation with the National Park Service and the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture. Food & refreshments are provided during each workshop. To RSVP, email:
