The Colored Conventions team has developed a research-based curriculum, Colored Conventions in a Box, that introduces faculty, students, and public audiences to teaching the nineteenth-century colored conventions movement and Black activism through research, writing and visual mapping. We are committed to producing educational resources that encourage extensive interrogation of themes and debates that arise in the convention minutes. With attention to scholarly interpretation and presentation, faculty and graduate scholars and librarians have curated sample writing assignments, research guides and engaging educational activities that supplement biographies, historical documents, and digital mapping exhibitions housed on the site. These materials may be used for teaching or learning more about the colored conventions movement in educational settings.
