Taking a Stand Lesson 3b: Transportation and Jim Crow

January 21, 2010 by alicemercer · No Comments · assignments

I want to you concentrate on how Jim Crow affected peoples ability to get around. Here are some links, concentrate on the ones that discuss the bus boycotts, and Rosa Parks. I’ve also added a couple of new links on Rosa Parks:

What you will do today is research. You will get information that will help you write and essay or a poem. I’m going to give you some links to sites that have links to information about

Martin Luther King, Jr.

African Americans

Rosa Parks

Great Women

Then, answer two of these questions:

  1. How important are buses to you? To your family?
  2. How would you feel being at “the back of the bus”?
  3. Why was this important?
  4. Why do you think boycotting the bus lines worked?
  5. Why do you think white people in the south did this?
