The 2020 Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site Civil Rights Educator Institute (CREI) is a design laboratory for social
engagement that provides a space for self-reflection and inquiry into issues related to human rights and education for liberation. This
institute brings together educators, community workers, and cultural activists to exchange knowledge and experiences + learn with and
from each other in an intensive week-long learning community.
The Institute offers experiential approaches and narrative strategies as tools to explore civil rights history and human rights struggles.
Using place-based learning, we will visit civil rights sites in the City of Little Rock and critically engage with issues of rights, struggle,
story, and power of place and introduce innovative ways of connecting past to present.
The CREI is a place to build community and solidarity + share multiple views and explore the work of educators as connected to civil
and human rights. Participants will create a knowledge camp and initiate concentric conversation to diminish social and cultural barriers
where they receive facilitation tools for classroom social action. Participants will receive credit for this professional development
