We Shall Overcome: The Fight for Voting Rights
Join the LBJ Library education department for the launch of a new, interactive online activity ideal for remote or blended learning environments. Following the journey for voting rights, students will evaluate the actions taken by President Johnson and civil rights activists to pass the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The activity is set up with a series of clues leading to primary and secondary sources, which must be examined and analyzed to unlock a secret code. During the journey, students will hear from John Lewis, George Wallace, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and President Johnson.
