Carnes, Jim; Roberson, Houston
"The Shadow of Hate" resource kit provides a videotape program (40 minutes), 20 copies of a 128-page student text ("Us and Them"), and a 32-page teacher's guide. This document consists of single copies of the two printed components of this kit. The resource traces the history of racial, religious, and social intolerance in the United States. Expressions of discrimination from slavery to modern hatemongering are discussed. Examples of discrimination are drawn from expressions directed towards Jews, African-Americans, Chinese, Irish, Native Americans, and Baptists in the United States. Case studies are drawn from memoirs, eyewitness accounts, archival photographs, and documents. The student text presents case histories: (1) "The Silencing of Mary Dyer"; (2) "Blankets for the Dead"; (3) "No Promised Land"; (4) "Harriet Jacobs Owns Herself"; (5) "In the City of Brotherly Love"; (6)"A Rumbling in the Mines"; (7) "Ghost Dance at Wounded Knee"; (8) "The Ballad of Leo Frank"; (9) "Untamed Border"; (10) "A Town Called Rosewood"; (11) "Home was a Horse Stall"; (12) "Nightriding with the Klan"; (13) "A Rose for Charlie"; and (14) "Street Justice." Lesson materials for each of the case histories are provided in the Teacher's Guide. Each lesson is formatted as follows: "Objective"; "Vocabulary"; "Discussion Questions"; "Writing Assignments"; and "Project Ideas." The guide also provides final assignment essay prompts. (MM)
