Virtual Journalist Visits for Afterschool Programs, Racial Justice Issues

Posted by Pulitzer Center on December 21, 2021

Are you an afterschool educator looking for ways to implement resources from The 1619 Project? Would you like to connect your students with journalists who report on racial justice and issues affecting Black Americans?

The Pulitzer Center has partnered with Mizzen by Mott, a free app to help afterschool professionals deliver exciting learning opportunities that inspire, engage, and empower young learners. We have created resources hosted on the Mizzen app for educators looking to incorporate The 1619 Project into their afterschool spaces. Our highly interactive resources for afterschool programs are designed to engage students’ creativity, teamwork, critical thinking, and media literacy skills.

To engage students in ongoing conversations about racial justice issues, we can also connect afterschool educators with journalists whose reporting relates to The 1619 Project. Connecting students with journalists is a great way to help inspire and engage young learners. Moreover, journalists can help students understand and appreciate the power of skills like research, writing, critical thinking, multimedia, and empathy among others.
