Editorial Reviews


At last a collection that broadens and deepens conventional understandings of the Civil Rights Movement, that goes far beyond Rosa Parks's refusal to give up her seat, Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, and the repeated scenes of dramatic interracial face-offs before the camera crews. It will be an essential text not just for scholars and teachers, but also for anyone seeking a less reverential, more multifaceted approach to the Civil Rights Movement.
–Deborah McDowell, University of Virginia

This valuable collection complicates and enriches the teaching of the civil rights movement. Employing the most recent scholarship, these essays challenge traditional approaches and provide excellent examples of innovative and compelling ways to teach this movement, and African American history more generally..
–Barbara Dianne Savage, UPenn

This book belongs in the library of every teaching historian...It will appeal not merely to those who focus on the history of the American civil rights movement but to all who seek new approaches to history pedagogy.
–History of Education Quarterly

Format: Paperback
Teaching the American Civil Rights Movement is a collaboration of teachers and college professors coming together to create new methods of teaching the Civil Rights. These are educators from across the nation meeting every summer to learn from one another. This text is a compilation of their creative strategies and tactics for students to benefit from. The book's aim is to present new ways of exposing the Civil Rights Movement in classrooms across the nation. It is more than a textbook; it is a creative package for students and scholars to become enlightened by our history and contemporary way of life.
