Presenting a well-rounded history of our nation requires teachers to present diverse perspectives and experiences. The Museum’s new Finding Freedom online interactive resource explores the stories of five real people of African descent living in wartime Virginia as they contemplated their best opportunities for freedom, liberty, and self-determination. Discover the many helpful features this resource offers teachers and students and explore opportunities for using them in your classroom in this case study of our final featured individual, Jack, who experienced the Revolution on Virginia’s western frontier. 

Check back to our Professional Development Workshop page for future workshops exploring the stories from Finding Freedom.

Finding Freedom is made possible with generous support from The Albert M. Greenfield Foundation.
