New Business Item 119 (2019)Referred to the Appropriate Committee
NEA shall advocate for the inclusion of Frederick Douglas', "What to the slave is the Fourth of July?" Oration is history and/or language arts classes.
NEA resolution I-50 mandates educators must acknowledge the existence of white supremacy culture is a root cause of institutional racism. Including Frederick Douglas' 1852 speech in the curriculum will advance this goal.
