We have all heard the names Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, John Lewis, and countless other brave men and women who started, and gave their lives for, the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s in the United States. But rarely do we examine the need for such a movement beyond the acknowledgment of slavery and Jim Crow laws. In this Active-Book we celebrate MLK Day by looking beyond the popularized textbook headlines and get into our Nation’s seedy history regarding eugenics, unethical medical testing, and social engineering that all made the Civil Rights Movement necessary. But, we also examine, through hands-on projects, why the fight is not over.
