Description

To the teacher:

On day one of this 5-day lesson, you will introduce the massacres of African Americans in the Midwest. Then you will introduce "Everyday Activism". Everyday Activism is something each of us can do each day to prevent incidents like the massacres from happening. It is also a small step in the right direction for anti-racism and social justice of color by being "change makers" in this world inundated with racism.

On each additional day, you will introduce a race riot, guide the the students to complete the graphic organizer and then choose one way in which the riot could have been prevented, thus saving many lives. The culminating activity will be reviewing more recent incidents and determining how they could have been prevented, altered, or rectified. This will be the portion for "forward movement" for social justice and anti-racism.

This resource helps young people both recognize the horrors of racial injustice left "unchecked" and also that they have a chance to prevent these from happening in the future by being "everyday activists".
