Book Talk Description

Kristin Gallas, co-editor of Interpreting Slavery at Museums and Historic Sites (2014), discusses her new book Interpreting Slavery with Children and Teens (Oct. 2021) and the importance of creating appropriate programming for all ages on this essential topic. Developing successful experiences—school programs, field trips, family tours—about slavery is more than just historical research and some hands-on activities. It requires empathy, respect, and willingness to engage in dialogue with young learners. Join the author as she shares findings from her research and answers questions about creating brave spaces for interpretation.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand why interpreting slavery with young audiences is appropriate and necessary, and how it differs from adult programming
  • Understand how physical, emotional, intellectual, and social engagement are all integral to the learning experience
