The Civil Rights Movement picked up some steam in the late 50s and early 60s, so please continue digging in to some of the main events using your Learning from the Civil Rights Movement activity, Part 1.
We will examine the turning point of the movement in our next class as we dig in to the greatest speech of the 20th century (and maybe of all time), “I Have a Dream”. To prepare for our dive into the March on Washington, your task is to MARCH – yes, march, or walk, or stroll – as you listen to “Setting the Stage for ‘I Have a Dream'”. Download it on your phone, and then take a walk. No notes are necessary! The second half of the podcast is the entire speech (16 minutes). We will analyze it in class, but it wouldn’t hurt to listen to it first! Also, you can print out a button, a program, or a map to carry as you walk … take a selfie with your souvenirs and post it on our Historical Challenge board!
