Civil Rights Movement: A Note to Students


Greetings students!

For the next few weeks, we will be discussing an important historical era in class: the Civil Rights Movement (1954-1968). Today, we can still see these repercussions from this movement in our politics, media, and our daily lives. As we shift from non-fiction and historical documents, we will also begin to analyze poetry in this unit, as well as speeches and other texts from the Civil Rights Movement.

Some themes to look for: racism, discrimination, freedom of speech, and censorship.

As always, we look forward to working with you in class!


Ms. Abney and Mr. Green
