Brooklyn Connections: Civil Rights Movement

  1. 1. Sample Student Projects
  2. 2. The Civil Rights Movement in Brooklyn MS 138, Crown Heights
  3. 3. At MS 138, students used documents from our Civil Rights Collection to examine how a national movement for equality took shape in Brooklyn.
  4. 4. All of the primary sources used in the projects were original, Brooklyn materials. Each class focused on a different Civil Rights issue, from neighborhood discrimination to school segregation.
  5. 7. “ We think it’s important to share what we have learned because it is an important part of our history. Today, African Americans and other races can sit in the same classroom and learn the same work without being discriminated against.” -Alisha, Ocean, Kamesha, Kianna
  6. 9. “ As a resident of Brooklyn I feel that it is important that you learn about the history of your home and where we came from.” -Tyree
