For nearly 50 years Facing History & Ourselves has invited teachers and their students to examine our shared history. By connecting the choices of the past to those we face today we realize our individual power to build a better society. The call for each of us to examine how our history shapes our world and lived experiences has never been more urgent.

Our personal histories are invaluable in shaping our identities and perception of the world. Please join us for a special conversation in partnership with Ancestry®, featuring historian and author Dr. Tiya Miles and Senior Story Producer at Ancestry, Nicka Sewell-Smith, in discussion with Facing History’s Chief Officer for Equity and Inclusion, Dr. Steven Becton.

Together we’ll explore how our personal histories inform our individual and collective identities, and learn about the systemic barriers which deny many Americans the opportunity to engage with their own histories. By addressing these barriers and investing in the personal histories missing from our shared narrative, we can build a stronger understanding of our connected past.”
