Curricular Resource for Black History Month: Cross-Cultural Solidarity in Social Justice Movements

Posted by Pulitzer Center on February 8, 2022

History has given us remarkable examples of cross-cultural solidarity within the context of social justice movements. These working relationships are the legacy on which today’s age of activism stands. By examining this historical/contemporary phenomenon through a diverse range of texts and media, students will hone analytical, writing, and social-emotional skills with an eye toward their collective role as a conscientious, global citizenry.

This unit was created by Heather Ingram, a 9th grade English Language Arts teacher in Chicago, IL., as part of the spring 2021 Pulitzer Center Teacher Fellowship program on Journalism and Justice. It is designed for facilitation across approximately 12 90-minute live or virtual class periods.
