Charleston Syllabus

I’m not sure how I didn’t know this now existed in print form. After following #Charlestonsyllabus on Twitter since the Charleston massacre, I have been trying to put together a social justice unit in correlation to Lay that Trumpet in Our Hands. 

This morning on Twitter, I saw someone post that the University of Georgia is printing hardback and paperback copies, and I immediately ordered a paperback copy. Needless to say, I will be impatiently awaiting its arrival. 

Here is a great article from the African American Intellectual History Society on why we need the Charleston syllabus. 

If you teach the novel or anything related to social justice, I encourage you to order a copy. If you can’t, however, here’s a link to the list of readings included in the Charleston syllabus. 

As we work through the novel for the first time, I will be creating lesson plans that I will post on this blog.
