Quakertown Quandaries: Using Local Historical Narrative to Explore Complex Issues 
What stories from the past exist in our communities? How can students dive into local historical narrative to explore complex issues and consider outcomes of how the past shaped and continues to impact communities? Spend an afternoon exploring Quakertown, a once vibrant African American community in the heart of Denton. Leave considering your own community’s historical narrative and how students can utilize it to leverage learning into deeper understandings. Limited to 20 participants
