This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Civil Rights - The Kerner Commission Report. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Following the devastating riots in the summer of 1967, President Lyndon Johnson created The National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders and charged it with the task of finding out: What happened? Why did it happen? What can be done to prevent it from happening again?
This commission answered all of the questions set forth to it by the president and produced the “Report of The National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders” in 1968. The Kerner Commission made many recommendations to media organizations that it felt would improve coverage of race related issues in the future. The commission made several recommendations to the media to help avoid such a situation from occurring again.
Many studies have focused on the media’s interpretation of the Civil Rights Movement and how well media organizations have heeded the Kerner Commission’s recommendation, yet little attention has been paid to the historical perspectives of past events.
The presentation covers the following:
The Kerner Commission
The Media’s Influence
Higher Degree of Care
Ignoring Local Events
