Slavery, Abolition, Emancipation and Freedom Primary Sources from Houghton Library

Teaching the Collection

Slavery, Abolition, Emancipation, and Freedom: Primary Sources from Houghton Library was designed to provide a free and accessible collection of Black history resources for scholars of all types. In pursuit of that goal, educational consultant Mekha Aponte was commissioned to create a unit for students grades 6-12, to be used by teachers of all types. "Unit One: Family Autoethnography using Primary Sources from SAEF," is both available on this site and is downloadable as a PDF from Houghton Library's wiki.

Hopefully in the future we will be able to add more units focusing on different parts of the collection and different age groups, making the collection more interactive for classrooms and remote learning.
