Real World History — a high school history class offered through DC public schools — invites students to develop their skills as historians as they study the Great Migration of African-Americans from the rural south to big cities such as Detroit, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
Watch as the students learn to develop their primary research skills, improve their history argument writing, intern at the White House Historical Association, and attend DC’s National History Day competition.
