A National Archives blog post about using Statue of Liberty propaganda posters for an engaging Common Core task for writing an informative/explanatory text. The Statue was frequently used during both world wars to encourage people to conserve wheat, buy war bonds, and work harder in factories. The colors, slogans, and overall tone of these posters are quite varied. (Image: That Liberty Shall Not Perish From The Earth, 1918, from the Records of the U.S. Food Administration)

The movement was characterized by major campaigns of civil resistance. Between 1955 and 1968, acts of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience produced crisis situations between activists and government authorities. Federal, state, and local governments, businesses, and communities often had to respond immediately to these situations that highlighted the inequities faced by African Americans.
On August 28, 2013, citizens from across the United States will meet in the nation’s capital to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Here are a few online activities to help students learn about these historic events and the Civil Rights Movement:
