πŸ”œ Wed Apr 21 2021 β€” The 1619 Project Facilitation Training

Join us for a special learning circle facilitation training session focused on The 1619 Project

The American Library Association has named Nikole Hannah-Jones, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and the creator of The 1619 Project, as the honorary chair of Preservation Week 2021, celebrated April 25-May 1, 2021.

Preservation Week is a yearly event that celebrates the role of libraries in preserving personal and shared collections. The ALA encourages institutions to use this time to connect with their communities with events, activities, and resources that highlight what we can do, individually and together, to preserve our personal and shared collections.

In support of Preservation Week and to honor Hannah-Jones’s important contributions to public knowledge, P2PU is presenting a free learning circle facilitation training that will explore the basics of running peer-based learning circles using The 1619 Project, a long-form journalism initiative that examines and reframes the history of slavery in the USA.

We’ll cover:

  • Learning circles – How and why they work
  • Tools & Resources – How to use P2PU’s free tools and resources to set up a learning circle, manage your meetings, and get help along the way
  • Sharing The 1619 Project – How to introduce these materials to your community through peer-based collaborative learning

All are welcome to attend!


Check back soon for a meeting agenda.
