Civil Rights Movement and the 1990s: Racism and the African-American Population.
A plan is presented for a curriculum that shows how African Americans have been left out of decision making, stereotyped negatively, and denied resources. The project is intended to be a base for future studies of human relations issues in order to understand how society operates. Using the contexts of the 1960s and the 1990s, the power structures of American society are clarified. The curriculum is designed for a high school social studies classroom, typically a 10th grade studying U.S. history. Topics for the 9 days of study are: (1) racism; (2) institutional racism (2 days); (3) discrimination; (4) African Americans; (5) continued oppression and prejudice today (2 days); (6) color consciousness and discrimination; and (7) dealing with racism. Eighteen attachments, including overheads, a questionnaire, a test, and handouts, are included. (SLD)
