Welcome to my resource page for the Civil Rights Movement!

My name is Jared Stock and I am a senior Secondary Education Social Studies major at Temple University. Since I am located in the historic city of Philadelphia, I like to look at the Civil Rights Movement as starting in the City of Brotherly Love. From the founding of the United States, there have been many fights for equality and I like to begin with the walkout by Richard Allen and the black congregation at St. George's United Methodist Church. I will continually add information to this website as there are many events in the over two centuries of the United States that can be seen as fighting for equality. It is also important to remember that these fights did not only occur in the United States, but throughout the world. When teaching a unit on the Civil Rights Movements, it is important as educators that we show our students that this did not all occur in one decade, but yet it started in the colonial period and is still going on today.

I broke this page into three major sections: Colonial Philadelphia, Civil Rights Era, and Other Civil Rights Movement. Each section contains sources that will be useful in the classroom for both teachers and students. I have also included some National History Day projects because it is important for students to see what other students have done for this great organization. There are links to other organizations that can be of use under this home page and examples of lesson plans Shawn Reath and I have put together below in the files. It is my hope that this resource website will be of use for students, future educators, and educators.

I am open to new information that I can include in this site, so please do not be afraid to contact me with sources that will be beneficial for teachers and students.

Best,
Jared Stock
