Title:Excerpts from the March on Washington, part 2

Instructional Web page recommended for grades six through twelve featuring a recording of a salute to women civil rights workers during the March on Washington. At the 1963 March on Washington, civil rights leaders offered a "Tribute to Women," which recognized the leadership roles of women in the Civil Rights movement, as well as the widows of civil rights leaders who were murdered for their activism. This recording pays tribute to Rosa Parks, Daisy Bates, Diane Nash, Mrs. Herbert Lee, Mrs. Medgar Evers, and Gloria Richardson.

Includes a background essay, discussion questions, and alignments to teaching standards.

Major funding for this project is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute.

Grade range: 6-12.
