Teach Banned History Partnership with the Zinn Education Project

Monday, February 13, 2023
In the face of growing attacks on the teaching of history, The New Press is partnering with the Zinn Education Project to send books to teachers and teacher educators in Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Iowa, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas.
These books are offered in solidarity with teachers who insist on their students’ right to study history and contemporary issues. The right wing seeks to indoctrinate students with a whitewashed narrative of history. Our goal is for young people to engage in intellectual inquiry, to pursue real questions about history, and to apply historical insights to contemporary issues.
Titles that teachers can request include:
Edited by Kimberlé Crenshaw, Neil T. Gotanda, Gary Peller, and Kendall Thomas
By Noliwe Rooks
By James Loewen
By Michelle Alexander
By Mariame Kaba and Andrea J. Ritchie
By Monique Couvson (formerly Monique W. Morris)
