Gale Case Studies: Race and Civil Rights

"Gale Case Studies: Race and Civil Rights is a learning module on the Gale Case Studies platform that faculty can use to inform and educate students on the nuanced topics of race and civil rights. This module brings together case studies, created with curated primary sources, and thoughtful discussion questions to guide critical thinking around complex issues. For practical application, instructors can easily combine any of the case studies in this module. Case studies about the Montgomery Bus Boycott and Lunch Counter Sit-Ins, for example, can be used to examine growing social justice movements in the United States today. Similarly, case studies like Communists in the Jim Crow South and the Cold War Backdrop to Civil Rights can be studied alongside the Black Lives Matter movement to give greater context to perceptions of radicalization."
