Thread. Last month I published an article about how resistance within slavery needs to be something we center in social studies classes

It's in The History Teacher, but they don't publish online until 6-12 months after the paper copy, so - what with #SlaveryWasAChoice trending & last month's @splcenter @Tolerance_org survey & articles - I'm tweeting through it here
Basically, my argument is that we need to represent the PERSONHOOD of enslaved people - and that doing so means recognizing that *they resisted in countless ways* that go far beyond the narrow textbook renderings of self-liberation/escape & uprising (although those are important)
