James W. Loewen (1942-2021)

We mourn the loss of our friend and colleague and remain committed to the work he began.

Getting Students Doing History

This happy student became a finalist in the National History Day “exhibits” competition. Sixth graders on Springfield, IL, prompted a new “Race Riot Walking Tour.” Middle-school students in Ohio did award-winning local research on sundown towns for National History Day. A lawyer in DE researched the “Reverse Underground Rail Road” and got two new state historical markers erected to tell about it. You can too! So can your students!
