    Thank you all for your well developed presentations that focused on women and black women’s roles in the movements of civil rights historically. I especially like the suggestions of “where to look for who’s pushing forward – democracy in America.”

    Does anyone have a study guide or comprehension and vocabulary questions to go with this series? I am a high school teacher trying to use this in US Hist but not a lot of time to develop lessons. Thank you!
