I used this timeline to help me create mini-lessons for my Black History Unit and provide my students with a visual display to organize our learning. I start my six week unit with the start of this timeline in 1619 and continue along the timeline until I reach present day. Each day I teach (or just introduce depending on the content) the fact on the cards. Each card has an important event that helped move African American's closer to freedom and equality. I have provided two font types depending on the style you want to display.
***Be watching for my common core 6 week unit- "The Long Journey to Freedom" that utilizes this timeline.
