|Title:||Moving to Oak Park|
In 1950, Percy Julian and his family moved from Maywood, Illinois, to the nearby, more exclusive neighborhood of Oak Park. This video segment, adapted from NOVA, uses reenactment footage to document the family's move, the resulting bombings and threats, and the support they received from the Oak Park community.
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.
Collection funded by The Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation, Inc.
