Did You Know?
The first teach-in was held in March of 1965 at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, as an alternative to a teaching strike protesting the Vietnam War. About 3,500 people participated in an exciting day and night of debates, lectures, movies, and musical events protesting the war. News spread quickly, and by the end of that year, 120 campuses had held similar teach-ins. This model of gathering, teaching, and learning for a specific cause outside of the curricular structure has inspired other initiatives across the decades. Among these initiatives include Black Lives Matter teach-ins held in 2015-2016 at university campuses across the United States.
