#30DayEducationChallenge Day 8

Sunday, June 28, 2020

Welcome to Week 2 of the #30DayEducationChallenge! This week we are talking about the Civil Rights Movement which took place over the 1950s and 60s. Today we're starting with the basics:

📖 The Civil Rights Movement: A Timeline - time to complete: 5 minutes (we'll get deeper into the protests later this week).
🎧 The Politics of Passing the Civil Rights Act - time to complete: 37 minutes.

I'm pretty sure the way I was taught the Civil Rights Act went was: Civil Rights Act gave everyone access to the same water fountains because obviously everyone it this way (except maybe a few bad guys from the South!), and then everything was equal and chill! (Were water fountains the universal civil rights example for kids?).

Reflection questions (journal, discuss with your groups, or join the Instagram conversations):

  1. What is one thing you learned?
  2. What is something that surprised you? 
  3. How did the passing of the Civil Rights Act change the country? How did the country stay the same? 
  4. Were Black people truly free with the passing of the Civil Rights Act?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. If you're just joining us- welcome! and no fear, you can catch up on last week as you have time. 

See yall out there.
