Martin Luther King and the Struggles for Black Voting: A Case Study for Expanding Democracy

January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| Free

Last spring, the League of Women Voters of Winchesters Steering Committee nominated two outstanding teachers from Winchester High School to attend a case method workshop taught by Harvard Business School Professor David Moss.  

The Case Method Institute for Education and Democracy at Harvard is an initiative formed to bring the case method of teaching to high schools to deepen their understanding of American history and democracy. It provides students with a unique opportunity to expand their civic education.

We are delighted that Chris Kurhajetz and Anne Marie Edenhofner, WHS US Social Studies teachers, participated in the CMI workshop, which included teaching a series of cases in their classes and working with the Winchester League to offer this community event: a case study discussion on the Voting Rights Act of 1965 including its relevance to voting legislation that is currently before Congress.

Registration for this Zoom event is required.  Please email hottopic@lwvwinchester.org to register for this event.
