Lowell Community Public Charter School


Our project will teach concepts of enslavement, resistance, and racial justice to our youngest learners in Kindergarten and First Grade by using Whole Book Approach strategies to analyze text and illustrations to develop deeper understanding of difficult concepts in Born on the Water. Since our school is in one of the mills that benefited from Southern cotton and the cheap labor provided by enslaved people, part of our project will assist students identifying and analyzing Lowell’s relationship to slavery and abolition in both space and time.
