Are you a fan of Today's Front Pages? Then you'll enjoy perusing our historical front pages that document major events in the U.S. civil rights and women's suffrage movements on our NewseumED website.
You'll find dozens of front pages in the interactive timelines in our two EDCollections. A zoom tool allows you to read every word on the page. Read original coverage of the Women’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, N.Y. (1848), the first bill introduced in Congress to give women the vote (1878), Marian Anderson's concert at the Lincoln Memorial (1939), the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. (1968), and more.
The published accounts complement other artifacts, images and videos in the timelines that cover more than a century and a half of history.
A front page is more than the "first draft" of history -- it also reveals much about the newspaper, community and the times. NewseumED.org is free but you must register in order to access the timelines and other premium material, including copyrighted works. Signing up is free, secure and easy.
