Lesson Plans for Black History Month on the Opper Project website
The Opper Project website (http://hti.osu.edu/opper/) has a lesson plan that may be of interest for those planning lessons related to Black History Month. This site provides instructors with the information necessary to introduce students to using editorial cartoons as primary sources. The cartoons are from the collection of The Ohio State University Cartoon Research Library. All the cartoons are evocative and teachable, and the topics available include a wide variety of central historical events and periods, including the Civil Rights Era. In particular, the Civil Rights Movement lesson contains several editorial cartoons related to race relations during the 1960s. It would certainly be an excellent addition to any lesson plan made for the purpose of celebrating this month.
