Description:

Web site responding to mandates requiring resources for teaching African American history into the social studies curriculum in K-12 public schools, to provide a more inclusive and accurate record of American history. It is designed as a multimedia resource for secondary school teachers to enhance their knowledge and ability in teaching African American history. It includes photographs, audio recordings, news clips, and excerpts of oral history interviews with a descriptive narrative text explaining significant themes and key events in African American history, from slavery to the twenty-first century. The narrative is event driven in order to fit easily into classroom curriculum, while emphasizing the role of the individual.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
