NAACP launches multimedia history site with funding from the Verizon Foundation


021710siteofweekThe NACCP has launched a new web site called the NAACP Interactive Historical Timeline, a multimedia site that tells the story of the 101-year-old organization and documents the civil-rights movement in general through words, pictures, and video. Funded through a $500,000 grant from the Verizon Foundation, the site’s many multimedia resources also will be made available to teachers, students, and parents through Verizon Thinkfinity (www.thinkfinity.org), a free educational web site from the foundation. Each point on the timeline includes a written narrative, historic video or photos, and an audio narrative read by a celebrity, such as actor Lawrence Fishburne. http://www.naacphistory.org
