This graphic organizer is designed to provide teachers and students with a detailed overview of the Civil Rights movement.

Teachers can provide this graphic organizer to students to complete in class or for homework. This graphic organizer does pair nicely with America’s History (Henretta). However, using that textbook for completion is not necessary. Students may use another textbook for completion, or even use the internet. You can view more in the preview here.

Although I’ve only provided a blank and filled-in version of this graphic organizer, everything provided is editable.  I’ve included a PowerPoint version (editable), a link to a Google Slides version (editable) and a PDF version (not editable).
