ASHP Awarded Ford Foundation Grant to Develop Who Built America? The Open Educational Resource
We are pleased to announce that the office of the President of the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice has awarded ASHP a grant of $150,000 for Who Built America? The Open Educational Resource (WBA? OER). The grant will be used to clear rights for twentieth- and twenty-first century visual, audio, and text primary sources; develop interactive maps and charts; and supplement the National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Humanities grant we received for the project in January 2019.
The Ford Foundation supported the Who Built America? project at its origin, and this grant will allow the textbook and rich teaching materials to reach a broad international public including trade unions, community-based activists, museums, and other organizations that have used ASHP’s educational materials for the past 38 years.
