This independent reading worksheet has a mix of reading comprehension questions and multiple choice (with some stimulus based questions). Topics include Civil Rights leaders such as: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Other important figures such as: Jackie Robinson, Shirley Chisholm, W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington. The main idea is to introduce what led to the Civil Rights Movement and introduce some key historical figures.
