Engage critically in the histories of race, racism, and resistance in the United States

We create multimedia curriculum materials to support educators to teach authentically on the challenging and essential histories of race in America.

Our Mission

Self-Evident Education is a digital humanities resource and community of educators of American history. We support educators and students to think critically about the role of race and institutional racism throughout United States history. We create highly engaging, multimedia, educational tools that educators, students, and communities can use to critically engage in conversations to understand the histories and the legacies of systemic racism in the United States. By honestly and rigorously studying the history of race in America, students will more fully understand who we are as a country, and how to build a more just society.
