Teaching Civil Rights History through Art in Your Classroom

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/websites/teachinghistory.org/sites/all/modules/date/date_api.module on line 866.

From the Smithsonian Institution:

"Curator Paul Gardullo and museum educator Anna Forgerson will explore the historical and cultural context of the Civil Rights Movement along with teaching strategies to utilize this information in the classroom. Using artworks selected by conference participants from the Oh Freedom! website, Gardullo and Forgerson will focus on ways to construct meaning through thoughtful, object-based methods in order to begin to understand how the Movement connects to the larger American experience."
