'The Forgotten Slavery of Our Ancestors': A Q&A With the Filmmakers
Our new classroom film 'The Forgotten Slavery of Our Ancestors' offers a critical contribution to the unfolding conversation about what our children need to learn about American history. The 12-minute film for grades 6-12 introduces students to the history of Indigenous enslavement on land that is now the United States.

As the historians featured in the short film point out, the enslavement of Indigenous peoples stretched from Alaska into South America. It predated and helped shape the system of African enslavement in New England, and it lasted throughout the 19th century in the West. As award-winning historian Andrés Reséndez says in the film, “This is our shared history.”

The film is now available to stream at tolerance.org/forgottenslavery.

To celebrate this new resource, we're hosting a panel and Q&A with the filmmakers at 3:30 p.m. CT Wednesday, October 7. The panel with be moderated by Teaching Hard History Advisory Board member Meredith McCoy and will feature director and editor Howdice Brown III and producers Marie Acemah and Alice Qannik Glenn.

We hope you’ll join us for this exciting conversation!
