Civil Rights

The Civil Rights Movement has a long and wide reach in Harlem’s history. Many people of all races played an important role in the movement. Our Harlem Civil Rights Lesson Plans will introduce students to some of these great individuals like Wyatt Tee Walker, Malcolm X, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr, Julia de Burgos, Hurbert Harrison, W.E.B. du Bois, Walter White, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, and Ida B. Wells to name just a few. The lessons are available for elementary school, middle school and high school students. We also have a supplemental lesson available to help reinforce what the student has learned. The lesson consists of ten vocabulary words, ten fun facts on the topic and a word search puzzle.
