Risking Everything

Thursday, November 26th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

One of the awesome parts of my jobs at the Wisconsin Historical Society (WHS) is working with primary source materials from the archive. One of the people in my cohort also works in the same department as I do at the WHS and got to work with the materials from the Freedom Summer project.

The Freedom Summer project was “an effort by civil rights activists to integrate Mississippi’s segregated political system. Northern volunteers and black Mississippians risked their lives to overturn racist institutions” according to the Wisconsin Historical Society’s page. I would suggest clicking About to learn more information on this exhibit and how the education goals they had for the students the exhibit was designed for.

It’s been interesting to be able to look at the documents first hand in the work room, so I was curious and looked to see what was online about the project. I discovered that when they did the exhibit, the WHS also created a Tumblr account for the project. That’s the site I’m sharing with you today.

It’s very cool to see how primary source materials can be turned into such a wonderful educational resource. You’ll arrive to the site on the section Exhibit. All you have to do is scroll down the page to see what was on each banner.

I’ve already talked about the About page, but you should also check out the Photos section to see photographs from the events that hosted the exhibit and the For Teachers section offers free lesson plans.

Go check it out for yourself today!
