Homework Due May 8

Read the following sections in the Civil Rights Movement packet:

  • Kennedy Finally Acts
  • The March on Washington
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Voting Rights
  • Black Nationalism and Black Power
  • Civil Rights Movement  Moves North

We will hit the ground running on Wednesday – we will finish Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s speech “I Have a Dream” and then move onto the the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act.  We will discuss the role black nationalism in the Civil Rights Movement, review the role Islam played in black society and examine the life of Malcolm X.

Just a reminder that our seniors will be presenting their PPTs in class on Friday – please try to arive a bit early to class so we can start quickly.
