Top Ten Civil Rights Songs | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
The civil rights movement has resonated deeply with generations of musicians. .

 

This link connects you to 10 YouTube clips of important songs that were inspirational in the shaping of the Civil Rights movement.  This is a poignant way to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day this coming Monday, but it is also a great archive for potential teaching resources...lessons that use music can have a profound impact.

Shelby Redman's curator insight, December 2, 2013 2:55 PM

Music tells our stories and shows a lot about the time in which it was made. This would be amazing to incorporate into the classroom. Teachers could break students up into groups and have them work on individual songs and pull historical inferences from them. Then you could bring the class back together to discuss.  There a lot of great visuals included in these videos.

Map shows how race is a social construct

Map shows how race is a social construct | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"Americans' understanding of who counts as 'white' has changed dramatically throughout the country's history and even over the last century alone. This map — which covers a decade of immigration to the US, from 1892 to 1903 — is a dramatic illustration of what it looked like when 'white' wasn't the same thing as European.  Mouse over any part of the map to magnify it."

 Up to me, race and colour don`t matter. Most important is the personality. America have now a black President. Is it better??
