Civil Rights Toolkit

The Atlanta History Center's vast virtual portfolio prides itself on "connecting history and your hard drive." One of the Center's virtual projects is the Civil Rights Toolkit, a great addition to classrooms (and perfect for caregivers, too). The toolkit focuses on young people, celebrating their role as "changemakers," and the various activities are designed to accommodate several grade levels. For example, a craft designed for elementary school students shows how to turn an empty spice bottle or tin can into a musical instrument. This homemade instrument will serve learners well as they participate in one of the sing along videos also included in the toolkit. Another activity, this time aimed at middle school students, discusses "Blackout Poetry," a hybrid literary-art project that adds new meaning to existing text. The toolkit also highlights an oral history project celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. The bottom of the exhibition page links to complementary resources, including the Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow exhibition and a learning lab about Jackie Robinson.
