This project will enable students to examine the causes
and effects of the Paterson riots of 1964.
Students will also use the Martin Luther King speech
to get a sense of the climate of the time and the issues
and challenges of African-Americans in NJ. This
project enables students to develop skills in analyzing
primary sources and applying prior knowledge. They
will produce a new whole from the primary sources they
received. Students will work in cooperative groups
to develop their own newspaper articles.
