Now that you are familiar with the Civil Rights Movement, you will analyze and assess three of its events by creating an informative presentation. Use your chart to help you begin your work.
- Choose three of the following events or actions to profile in a presentation:
- March on Washington
- Montgomery bus boycott
- Watts Riots
- Selma March
- Children’s Crusade
- Formation of Black Panthers
- Freedom Summer
- Freedom Rides
- Greensboro sit-ins
- Summarize each event, including which of the civil rights organizations and leaders were responsible for it.
- Explain whether each event was violent or non-violent and why.
- Explain whether each event could be considered a success or not. Be sure to include specific details to support your claim.
- Explain your response to the following question: Based on the outcomes of the events you chose, do you think violent or nonviolent protest strategies were more effective?
- Organize your work into one presentation in your choice of format. Examples include a podcast, voice thread, slideshow, video, or newsletter. There are many 21st century tools available for creating and submitting these types of presentations.
