I was so inspired that LGBTQ history was approached here in such an academically rigorous way. The materials that you have included and the context that you provide will go a long way towards making teachers who perhaps are not so comfortable feel like they can teach this and teach it well. I absolutely love the diversity and the depth of the teaching materials. - Amber




In the late 1980s, Eric Marcus began recording 100 audio oral history interviews with LGBTQ activists and champions from the 20th century. These interviews informed Eric's authorship of two books and inspired the award-winning podcast series Making Gay History.

Eric will come to your school and provide an assembly for your students with his audio oral history tour of the Give Voice to History Project podcast series, produced in partnership with History UnErased for NYCDOE students in grades 6 through 12. Students will hear about Eric’s experiences meeting these extraordinary people and listen to their brave, funny, and often frustrating tales of their championship for LGBTQ equality. (Approximately 45-minute long presentation.)

History UnErased will provide each participating school with a one-hour introduction to their school's account to access History UnErased’s Intersections and Connections curriculum, which includes complementing Give Voice to History Project podcasts, and will provide pre and post-assembly resources for students. An optional city-wide virtual follow-up session with educators and students from all participating schools will be offered in June 2022 (date TBD).

A limited number of first-come-first-served assemblies are available for booking from January through June 2022. Submit your request today!
