Product Description
This lesson challenges students to make connections between a 1936 poem turned into song, to the work of Ida B. Wells for a national anti-lynching law. Students will first analyze a first day cover (envelope containing a commemorative stamp honoring Wells, with appropriate postmark and artwork) to discover who Ida B. Wells was. Next they will analyze the poem, "Strange Fruit" to interpret images of lynching though the word is never used. Through a series of quotes and a letter students will discover the voice of Ida B. Wells and her vision for a "lynch-free America". Is there a lynch law today? Does the hate crimes law provide enough of a deterrent?
