Less Loudly Sung Heroes of the Civil Rights Movement
In the past, this unit has been centered more closely on the civil rights movement. As the years have progressed, we have begun to diversify the content to include some social justice issues from other parts of the world, and some that reflect the current moment in history. However, we still want you to learn about the civil rights movement. This year, we'll be assigning you to research an individual who was instrumental in the civil rights movement but doesn't receive the same amount of "air time" in school curricula. These are the "less loudly sung" heroes of the movement. Each of you will randomly draw a person to research. You will be asked to create a collage of photos reflecting the person's life, his or her accomplishments in the movement, and the struggles he or she faced. In addition, you'll prepare a brief presentation on this person to share with the class.
