Workshop – Loyalty, Voice, or Exit? The Philosophical Foundations of Democracy through the Story of Prince Hall
December 12 at 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Date: Tuesday Dec 12, 2023, 4:00-6:00 pm ET
Description: In this session, teachers will experience a simulation which explores Prince Hall, an 18th century free Black man in Boston, whose civic engagement in the 1780s serves as a model for our students today. Prince Hall was an abolitionist community leader in the years following the revolution who used petitions and the ideals of the Declaration of Independence as his primary tool in the fight against enslavement. Through the simulation, teachers and students explore the basic challenge for every civic participant, which is how to decide responsibly about when to participate in an organization, when to seek reform in an organization through dissent, and when to leave it.
