Selecting Primary Sources to Examine the Civil Rights Act of 1964


Selecting Primary Sources

Primary sources engage students in developing a deeper understanding of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Selecting primary sources to use in the classroom requires careful consideration including examining audience, context, point of view and logistics. Education experts lead participants in selecting primary sources while discussing the goals of teaching about the Civil Rights Movement to include events, leaders, groups, history, obstacles, tactics and connections to other movements, current events and civic participation.​
