In 1980, Terry Fox continued his fight against bone cancer with the pursuit of a singular, motivating vision: to run across Canada. Three years after having his right leg amputated six inches above the knee after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma, Fox set out to cover more than a marathon's distance each day until he reached the shores of Victoria, British Columbia. Anonymous at the start of his journey, Fox steadily captured the heart of a nation with his Marathon of Hope. However the 21-year old BC native's goal was not fame, but to spread awareness and raise funds for cancer research.

Professional Development: Slavery, Race, and Capitalism: An Enquiry

September 19th, 3:30 p.m.

Speakers: Dr. Robert Fitzgerald, Dr. Andrew Hartman, Dr. Robin Whitburn, and Kate Pole

This two-hour session will be centered around illuminating the nexus between slavery, race, and capitalism to help teachers do justice in their history classrooms in terms of what should be taught concerning this nexus and how they can better teach it. The audience for this professional development is primarily for secondary level U.S. history teachers, however, it could be pertinent for those in middle schools who might teach about slavery in their history/social science classes. This session will also include portions pertaining to both theory and practice – those present will have moments of hands-on interaction with key documents and/or historical interpretations concerning the subject. Contact mszabo@alicenter.org with questions.
