This website is a great resource for older students who wish to learn about Civil Rights. This website provides an interactive timeline that goes through important Civil Rights events. Once an event is clicked on, it pops up a in depth description of the event. Many of the events also have youtube videos attached to them, which I find is very useful. There is so much information given for each event, and I find this website to be very helpful in learning the sequence of important Civil Rights events. This timeline begins in the 1600s, and goes up through today.
