Join the Center for Civic Education in celebrating Black History Month this year with daily podcasts and videos from 60-Second Civics, as well as lesson plans teaching the story of the civil rights movement and the power of nonviolent action to effect change.
Each day in February, 60-Second Civics will feature a podcast episode dedicated to the African-American experience, with a special focus on the expansion of civil rights since the nation's founding era and the confrontation of modern challenges to full equality. Each podcast includes audio, video, and the Daily Civics Quiz.
"The Power of Nonviolence" is the theme of six free lesson plans for middle and high school students devoted to the study of the use of nonviolence in the Civil Rights Movement. Students will learn about the Children's March of 1963 the costs and benefits of nonviolence, and more.
