Protest and Politics
The stories from across America have been disturbing, with clashes between protestors and police.  Sadly, it’s not the first time protestors have raged against governments from democratic to autocratic–and in each case, the state raged back. This classroom resource provides background information about the Civil Rights movement in the U.S., the Vietnam War, societal shifts, the media, and events around the globe.

Civil Rights: Then and Now
This collection of videos, documents, and primary sources lends context to the events and leaders that defined the Civil Rights Movement’s first three decades (1954-1985). These resources also capture the issues and activists involved in the struggle today—those making headlines, stirring debate, and trending on social media.

The education staff at WXXI, a public media services company in Rochester, New York pulled together an extensive list of activities from PBS LearningMedia to support educators and families while discussing race. The list explores race, anti-racism, protests, civil rights, Black history, bias, and more.
