Road Trip!

Through South Carolina's Civil Rights History

Grades 6-12

Road Trip! Through South Carolina Civil Rights History was designed to help teachers and students to learn about the people and the events, and the importance of the civil rights movement in South Carolina from the 1940s to the early 1970s. Questions to think about:

  • Which Civil Rights activists impressed you? What contributions did they make to the Civil Rights Movement in SC?
  • What struggles, dangers and hardships did people face during the Civil Rights Movement?
  • If you had been a student activist at that time, what would you have done?

We would like to thank the Road Trip Advisors for their knowledge and help creating this web project.

Thank you also to Cecil Williams for providing permission to use photos from Freedom & Justice: Four Decades of the Civil Rights Struggle As Seen by a Black Photographer of the Deep South.
