A Call for Change

 

 

The first topic that we will cover in our last unit in American Studies this year will be the Civil Rights Movement in America.  One of the largest and most effective 'calls for change' in our country's history involved the century long push for equal rights waged by African-Americans. This wiki will be a key learning tool for us as we explore this momentous time in our country's history.  Before you begin exploring the site, please connect to the "Read Me First" link below which will provide you with step-by-step directions for the use of this wiki.
