Civil Rights in America: What obstacles do African Americans still face today?

Civil Rights in America: What obstacles do African Americans still face today?

This lesson questions how far the African American community in America has come since the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The lesson starts with focusing on the inspirational actions of two American athletes during the Mexico Olympics of 1968. The students are questioned on the symbolic nature of their protest and how their message had far reaching implications. Six case studies are investigated by the students from the achievements of Michael Johnson and Barak Obama to the tragic incidents surrounding Rodney King and James Byrd. There is much accompanying video footage as well as differentiated tasks to enable students to make a judgement at the end.

Civil Rights in America: How could you protest?

Civil Rights in America: How could you protest?

This lesson aims to explain how black people in America voiced their protests against their lack of Civil Rights in the 1950s and early 1960’s. Students are introduced to the various forms of protest they used which they have to research and ultimately decide how effective each form of protest was. The resources are differentiated and there are quite a few links to video footage at the time to reinforce the learning. Students use the key words at the end of the lesson to summarise their new found knowledge.
