Charles Chesnutt in the Classroom is designed to introduce students, teachers, and interested readers to historical connections between Groveland, Ohio, the location for most of Chesnutt’s northern fiction, and Cleveland, Ohio, where Chesnutt was born in 1858 and died in 1932. Chesnutt’s life, which spans two centuries, offers a unique lens to not only observe Cleveland the verge of urbanization but also understand its influence on black education, Black Nationalism and the emerging Black Middle Class, with particular attention paid to deconstructing Chesnutt’s use of satiric perspective in describing race relations in Northeast Ohio and state of American politics at the turn of the 19th century.

The 15th and 19th Amendments to the US Constitution. The year 2020 will mark the anniversaries of two amendments to the US Constitution that expanded the nation’s ideas about citizenship and extended the right to vote to African American men and to women.

This textbook is divided into three sections: Africa, Asia & Americas, and Europe. It explores the history of the world from pre-historic times to 1300 C.E., paying specific attention to the interconnections (or disconnections) between peoples and regions. Students are encouraged to think beyond their experiences with western civilizations to recognize the widespread impact of historical events and trends, including how they helped shape the world today. Touching upon each world region, the readings investigate the impact of environment, economics, politics, and religion on diverse societies. Key topics are sites of change and integration such as the rise of cities, religion, technology, migration and trade, the spread of disease, gender relationships, warfare and social movements.
