A National History Day season for the history books! Arizona students stayed committed to their NHD projects despite facing an ever-changing NHD landscape! The theme for 2022 was Debate and Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures, and Consequences.
Congratulations to the 43 students from Arizona representing 28 entries that were promoted to the national contest. They competed against over 3,000 students from all over the world!
Recent Journal of Arizona History author Summer Cherland will discuss higher education in South Phoenix, an area that has often been stereotyped and misunderstood.

Cherland recounts the struggle by South Phoenix activists to establish a college “down there” and to improve the lives of the South Phoenix community.
