************************************

Greatness is sticking with what is right in one’s heart regardless of the resistance faced.

The Civil Rights Movement finally finished the work set forth a century earlier by demanding the federal government enforce and strengthen our nation’s laws and also its moral character. Arguments by leaders and supporters expanded beyond the legal realm and took a moral, patriotic, and rational position that proved successful.

Cut through the boring textbook and head straight to the compelling sources that make this era one of great activism, brave leadership, and the commitment to “holding these truths” up high for all to see, challenging your students to dare to dream, “How might I lead my generation’s cause?”

Included are:
- Detailed lesson plans, with strategies for all reading levels
- 2 1-page definition sheets for the concept “segregation” and “racism”
- 1-page HIPPOS reference handout
- 6 2-page abridged sources with graphic organizer sheets & answer keys
