"MANKIND CONNECTED: A GLOBAL TEACH-IN," Live from the Newseum in Washington, DC on Thursday, November 8th

In conjunction with new 12-hour / 6 night epic television series, Mankind the Story of All of Us, premiering Tuesday, November 13 at 9pm EST on HISTORY

We have diverse cultures, varied traditions and we speak many languages- yet across the globe people share two things in common: our past and our future. HISTORY(R) invites young people across the world to join us for MANKIND CONNECTED: A Global Teach In, a live online event via www.history.com/classroom on Thursday, November 8th at 12pm EST.

MANKIND CONNECTED: A Global Teach-In is a live webcast featuring schools from across the globe, focused on the value and importance of learning about our shared human story through the lens of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Throughout the world, UNESCO's (United Nations Scientific, Educational, and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Centre has designated 962 important cultural and natural sites, including 21 in the United States. Participation from students and educators from all 7 continents, including a satellite ground station in Antarctica, will be featured.

Thousands of schools will be tuning in to the webcast on Thursday, November 8th at 12PM EST from www.history.com/classroom. The live event will take place from the Knight Studio at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. Moderated by HISTORY's Chief Historian Dr. Libby O'Connell, MANKIND CONNECTED will feature a live discussion between a panel of experts and students. The featured panelists are Dr. Albert Camarillo, Professor of History at Stanford University, and President of the Organization of American Historians and UNESCO expert Dr. Agnes Hsu, Resident Scholar and Director of Arts and Culture for the China Institute.

MANKIND CONNECTED is part of HISTORY's most extensive educational outreach effort to date. Schools from countries around the world, including Ghana, Chile, Pakistan, France, and the United States will ask questions and give short video presentations. UNESCO World Heritage sites featured in MANKIND THE STORY OF ALL OF US will be explored. In addition to the live webcast, HISTORY has launched a global series of PSA's about the importance of World Heritage sites, and has provided free educational guides, posters, and other classroom resources connected with the MANKIND television series. The webcast will be filmed and archived online at www.history.com/classroom for those unable to watch live.
