Different Paths to Freedom: Slavery and the American Revolution

from HistoryConnects from the Virginia Museum of History & Culture

Program image

Discover the implications that the American Revolution had on ideas of freedom and liberty. Students will examine the relationship between enslaved African Americans and the American Revolution through an investigation of Lord Dunmore’s Proclamation, James Lafayette’s petition, and Peter Sublett’s manumission.

This program will introduce your students to a different primary source, through a guided inquiry process. The students will engage in primary source analysis and interpret the importance of the primary source, and place it into historical context. The source will be aligned to both the Virginia and national standards, and will also be paired with replica artifacts to help further illuminate the meaning. This interactive program will end with a period for questions and answers.

This program is part of the celebration of Digital Learning Day and will take place during the #DiscoverDL festival February 16-19, 2016. This event is proudly supported by the Pinnacle Education Collaborative. Find more events by searching #DiscoverDL on the CILC website!
