Delve into the Narrative of America’s Past

Making a Change, a learning module from Newseum Digital Classroom, explores how the First Amendment shaped the civil rights movement. Students can delve into hundreds of historical newspapers, videos, photographs, and more to find out how the five freedoms empowered people fighting for change—and those fighting against it. Individuals—young and old, black and white, male and female, rich and poor—became part of this movement. The website includes an interactive timeline featuring more than 200 historical front pages, videos, and photographs; a media map comparing newspapers’ front-page coverage of civil rights events across the country; a gallery of multimedia panels showcasing contemporary civil rights issues and the changes students are making in their communities; and standards-aligned lesson plans that support historical thinking, media literacy, and civic engagement and offer the opportunity for students to submit their work for display on Digital Classroom.
