Educators and AWTT

Dr. Elisa Díaz-Martínez:
"Robert’s Americans Who Tell the Truth has become a distinctive and profound way of teaching American History and American Thought...His work will help us advance towards common understanding and tolerance."
Karyn Field:
"I want the young adults I’m teaching to gain a true understanding of not only what happens during times of injustice, but most importantly, why these events are allowed to unfold. "
Laurie Solchenberger:
"We had a "dinner party" with students sharing their biographies with each other as if they were the person they studied. It was fantastic to "see" Zinn sitting next to Chomsky sitting next to Mother Jones sitting next to Woody Guthrie!"
Adele Drake:
"Robert Shetterly's portraits cut to the chase in a compelling way. Students could access the profound sentiments that these portraits represent."
