These worksheets provide an introduction to key African-American figures of the pre and post-Civil War period. Each example includes a brief introductory biography, an image, and an excerpt from a primary source document.
I used these as “do now” starters during our unit on the Civil War.
This set includes: Frederick Douglass, Solomon Northup, David Walker, Harriet Jacobs, Olaudah Equiano, Sojourner Truth, Booker T. Washington, and W. E. B. Du Bois.
