William Lanson: New Haven's African King

Students discuss the misrepresentations of African Americans in the United States. In groups, they examine the life and accomplishments of William Lanson and the importance of extending the Long Wharf. Together, they pretend they lived during Lanson's time, create a problem that could impact all of New Haven and develop solutions to end the lesson.
