Events

Events tend to shape individual lives in different ways. In Harlem, we have experienced events that still have a profound impact on our community. We will explore some of these events like the Harlem Riots of 1934, the Harlem Riots of 1943, the Harlem Riots of 1965, the end of World War I, and the attempted assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Our Harlem Historical Events Lesson Planswill teach students about these important events and more. 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.
