What you'll learn
This workshop revisits a time period and movement that educators already know well, but poses new questions: How did civil rights activists use the First Amendment to achieve their goals? How did Martin Luther King Jr. harness the power of the news media? Participants view a Newseum-made documentary based on primary sources that invites them to look at the civil rights movement from a different angle, and then tackle an activity that bridges the gap between social movements then and now.
This workshop includes an interactive lesson with a Newseum educator, teaching strategies and resources, and a gallery exploration guide.
