Website Spotlight: Emmett Till


Website URL: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/till/

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

++++++++++

I ask the students to work through the following links:

Primary Sources: Correspondence is good.


Teens and Segregation: Chicago and Mississippi


Killers' Confession in LOOK Magazine


Lynching in America


Sharecropping in Mississippi


Citizens' Councils

++++++++++

Concluding Note:
