From then to now: the Civil Rights Movement and Black Lives Matter

Please work through the PP below to learn about the Civil Rights Movement in the USA and how Black Americans fought for their rights. Also, discover what Black Lives Matter really means and what the movement is fighting for. 

This is SUCH an important topic to learn about, however, I am well aware that it can be shocking and quite upsetting. Please discuss anything that makes you feel sad with your adults or send me an email. Also, if you have any questions, please email me.

Conduct some further research and create an information leaflet on one of the following topics: 

  • Black Lives Matter
  • Rosa Parks
  • The Montgomery Bus Boycott
  • The Greensboro sit ins
  • The march from Selma to Montgomery 
  • Or...another topic of your choice that you have found when researching.


Please remember to use Safe Search when researching particularly for this topic as some of the content may be upsetting.
