Rating

Lesson Focus Question: How did the Black Panther Party’s survival programs, specifically the Free Breakfast Program, support the organization’s larger goals for systemic change?

Teaching Thesis: Although the Black Panther Party is remembered for its use of military tactics and emphasis on police patrols and open carry demonstrations, they also developed programs to meet the day to day needs of community members. The Black Panther Party survival programs, namely the free breakfast program, were instrumental in furthering the organization’s objectives. The survival programs served as a powerful recruiting tool and helped to meet the basic needs of community members so that they could focus on the larger goals of peace, justice, freedom, and self-determination.

1619 Project

The project was based on a proposal by Hannah-Jones to dedicate an issue of the magazine to a re-examination of the legacy of slavery in America, at the anniversary of the arrival of the first slaves to Virginia. The plan was to challenge the notion that American history began in 1776. The initiative quickly grew into a larger project. The project encompasses multiple issues of the magazine, accompanied by related materials on multiple other publications of the Times as well as a project curriculum developed in collaboration with the Pulitzer Center, for use in schools. The project employed a panel of historians and support from the Smithsonian, for fact-checking, research and development. The project was envisioned with the condition that almost all of the contributions would be from African-American contributors, deeming the perspective of black writers an essential element of the story to be told.

What did people think of the new Poor Law? In 1834 a new Poor Law was introduced. The new Poor Law ensured that the poor were housed in workhouses, clothed and fed. However, not all Victorians shared this point of view. Some people spoke out against the new Poor Law, calling the workhouses ‘Prisons for the Poor’. The poor themselves hated and feared the threat of the workhouse so much that there were riots in northern towns.

The 1919 race riots were the first time many people became aware of the presence of black and minority ethnic people living in Britain, including those who had lived and worked here for many years and served in the war. At the end of the First World War, the demobilisation of troops caused severe post-war competition for jobs. The perception that foreigners were ‘stealing’ jobs was one of the triggers for the rioting and attacks on black and minority ethnic communities in British port cities. Use this lesson to find out more about the 1919 race riots in Cardiff and Liverpool. How significant a factor was race in these riots?

19th Amendment at 100: A Centennial Reassessment, Focusing on Sex, Race, and Memory (Webinar Resources)
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which removed “sex” as a legal reason to disqualify citizens from voting. Centennial celebrations have revealed how little most Americans know about the history of women’s rights and how contested this history remains. For the past 100 years, suffrage history has been marginalized and narrowly focused on a few white leaders. But recent scholarship has upended the standard narrative of suffrage, which starts with the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention and focuses on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. This webinar will incorporate new research on suffrage, highlighting sex and race. Drawing on the book Free Thinker: Sex, Suffrage, and the Extraordinary Life of Helen Hamilton Gardener (W.W. Norton, 2020), we will consider how the sexual double standard motivated activists, how the 19th Amendment got through Congress, and how racism shaped the suffrage movement and its legacy.These readings support the webinar of the same title featuring Kimberly Hamlin, Associate Professor of History, Miami University of Ohio.
