The Negro in American History: A Brief Content Outline for Use By Teachers.
Wilmington Public Schools, DE.
This curriculum content outline is intended to help the teacher decide where information about the Negro should be integrated into the study of American history and culture. The primary objective is for teachers to make a major contribution toward helping build a better self-image on the part of Negro students and, at the same time, enlarge the interests and understanding of all students. Using an historical approach, the guide begins with the African and Latin American heritage of the Negro, then progresses through eight other periods to the present: 1) the colonial and Revolutionary War Negro; 2) from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War; 3) the Civil War and emancipation; 4) Reconstruction; 5) the era of disappointment from 1877 through 1901; 6) the early twentieth century; 7) the depression, the New Deal, and World War II; and, 8) the struggle for equal rights after World War II. A bibliography of resources for both teachers and students is included in each section along with an appended list of central film library materials. Supreme Court decisions prior to the Brown decision are also appended. This outline can be used to supplement social studies courses at all levels. (SBE)
