For Educators

Curriculum resources for the American Black Journal archive have been developed around 10 themes from African-American history (See below.)

There are four types of educational resources.

  • Brief show segments allow students to immediately engage the primary source video content in the ABJ archive.
  • Comprehension questions about the video segments “check” student understanding.

  • Critical thinking questions about a group of show segments challenge students to make connections across the featured content. These questions help students see the big picture and draw conclusions about topics in African-American history that are examined in ABJ programs.

  • Annotated web, film and book guides lead students and teachers to related content for further study.
