“JFK, Dallas, and the Struggle for Civil Rights” Lesson Plans and Video from the Sixth Floor Museum

This past summer, I was honored to have the opportunity to speak at a teacher institute at the Sixth Floor Museum about the Viva Kennedy campaign and the Mexican American civil rights movement in Texas.  The teachers spent a whole week learning about the larger relationship between JFK, Dallas, and the struggle for civil rights.  Each afternoon, the teachers prepared lesson plans on specific subjects, including one for elementary school students on “Hispanic Americans,” inspired by my talk.  Check out all of the lesson plans here on the museum’s website, and watch this very slick summary video (it gets good around 2:30 haha):
