Separate But Equal - Is It Black or White?

This Separate But Equal - Is It Black or White? lesson plan also includes:

The story of Ruby Bridges and the case of Brown vs. The Board of Education are fantastic tools for discussing the concept of separate but equal. Kids tackle some big questions about what is fair, what is civil, and what rights or laws were put into place after these two historical events occurred. They view a video, read about Ruby Bridges, compose journal entries, have a round table discussion, and act out scenarios that show what "separate but equal" is or is not.
