The Trouble Maker Project


The Troublemaker Project is a collaborative, school-based local knowledge-making effort between high school students, general and special education teachers, faculty and dis/ability liberation activists informed by Shalaby’s (2017) work on teaching love and learning freedom. This student-led alliance addresses local issues of equity and social justice (namely the race/disability nexus in schools) through sustained dialogue and coalition building. With the support of The 1619 Education Network, the Troublemaker Project is conducting oral histories with residents to preserve and sustain the legacies of the Locust Hill Cemetery-- Trenton’s largest and oldest remaining African American burial ground.
