How would you feel? • Simulated Journal: • How would you feel if you were Tricia Ann during the 1950’s (when everything was segregated)? Write a story of something you would normally do on a weekend, but as Tricia Ann during the 1950’s. • What emotions come up when you realize things you normally would do are segregated? Do a lot of the things you normally do become effected? • Think of examples from the story. • Bus rides, benches, movie theater, entering establishments, drinking water from a fountain, etc.
How would you handle this? • Little Rock High School was the first school to desegregate and incorporate African Americans. If you were the principal of Little Rock High School, what would you do in response to this letter? • How could you keep the white students from picking on the African American students? • Would you allow the FBI to come to your school? Do you think it would help the bullying? Why or why not? • What would you do to keep your new students safe? What would you do to keep the bullying from happening?
What would you ask? • The Greensboro, NC sit ins of 1960 were the first sit ins to take place in the Southeast. The men in the picture were the first men to trigger many other non-violent sit ins across the south. Remember, these men were refused service at a restaurant, which caused them to use non-violent protest. These often turned violent when people began throwing objects at them. • What questions would you ask them? • Gather at least five (5) questions for these men.
