Beyond Rosa Parks: Powerful Voices for Civil Rights and Social Justice

Collector: Ann V.

The lessons in the "Beyond Rosa Parks: Powerful Voices for Civil Rights and Social Justice" unit module introduce young historians to four African-American women who made significant contributions to the modern civil rights movement. Maya Angelou's poem "Still I Rise," Mary Church Terrell's 1898 speech, an interview with Mary McLeod Bethune—a formerly enslaved person and then advisor to President Franklin Roosevelt—and Marian Wright Edelman's 2014 Commencement Speech at Lewis and Clark College serve as models for young scholars to use their voices to inspire change.
