Learn about the Civil Rights Movement–from those on the front lines

The National Visionary Leadership Project has introduced a new series of lesson plans on the Civil Rights Movement, called “Integrating with All Deliberate Speed.” This comprehensive multimedia unit includes video clips, a timeline, photographs, historical documents, and other primary resources and is available free of charge. Each lesson takes students behind the scenes of the movement through first-person accounts by historic figures, including Coretta Scott King, James Meredith, Andrew Young, Dorothy Height, Bob Moses, and Constance Baker Motley. Through their personal stories, students will gain rare access to the private realities behind public, historic events such as the 1963 March on Washington; the violent confrontation known as “Bloody Sunday” in Selma, Alabama; the 1964 Freedom Summer voting rights campaign; James Meredith’s integration of the University of Mississippi; the Brown v. Board of Education legal battle, and more.
