PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This web activity is a short, quick way to preview the events highlighted in Lee Daniels' The Butler. I love showing the movie in Civics, Government, and US History classes because it highlights (through the difference of opinion between the father and son) two very separate paths chosen to achieve civil rights. On one hand the father urges caution and a slow approach to earning respect and equality. On the other hand, the son supports more aggressive means of obtaining equality.

For this short activity, students spend some time searching online the major events highlighted by the film Lee Daniels' The Butler to see how close to reality the movie portrays the actual historical events. Students are asked to provide abbreviated descriptions of the events as well as finding a picture online that captures the event. Then, students are given links to articles about the Civil Rights Movement and asked to both summarize and to assess the credibility or the author and source.

Though there is no "one right answer", a copy of a student's responses are included in the product.
