Court Cases

Civil Rights Advocates

 Voting & Civil Rights Acts & Amendments

 Womens' Rights Advocates

Long after the Civil War had been won by the North and the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed by President Abraham Lincoln, the struggle for civil rights continued. It was not just one event or one person that changed the way that minorities are treated in the United States, it was the culmination of much effort by many people over a long period of time, that resulted in the change in status of women and people of color. Of course, the struggle goes on and must be won be each successive generation. Education about the events, people, court rulings, Acts and Amendments keep our country's belief in the idea of equal rights for all alive. This project engages students to build timelines that document the development of the civil rights movement in this country for public display.
