Since 2020, the Zinn Education Project has hosted hundreds of Teaching for Black Lives Study Groups. Each study group receives copies of Teaching for Black Lives and a Rethinking Schools subscription for each participant, a year-long menu of workshops and seminars to choose from, and access to a network of social justice teachers across the United States.
In 2021, participants in the Teaching for Black Lives campaign — study groups, online classes, and/or Teach Truth Day of Action — were interviewed to reflect on their experience.
Wendy Harris, teaches high school social studies at Metro Deaf School in St. Paul, Minnesota. She also participated in a Teaching for Black Lives study group and supports the Zinn Education Project classes as a facilitator.
