Description:

In this activity, students will examine an historical newspaper, a piece of historical fiction, and their social studies textbooks for accounts of the civil rights movement, and then define equality and discrimination. They will then use these definitions to look for instances of equality and discrimination in modern society. Part of an "OurStory'' module entitled "Students Sit for Civil Rights'' , this activity will help students develop their research and analysis skills. OurStory is a program from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History designed to help children and adults enjoy exploring history together through the use of objects from the Museum's vast collections, quality children's literature, and engaging hands-on activities.
