Civil Rights for Kids: African-American Civil Rights Movement

Leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Booker T. Washington, and Rosa Parks paved the way for non-violent protests which led to changes in the law. When most people talk about the "Civil Rights Movement" they are talking about the protests in the 1950s and 1960s that led to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Background The Civil Rights Movement has its background in the abolitionist movement before the Civil War. Segregation and the Jim Crow Laws After the Civil War, many southern states continued to treat African-Americans as second class citizens. Early Protests In the early 1900s, black people began to protest the Jim Crow laws that southern states were implementing to enforce segregation.

Heroes: What They Do & Why We Need Them

Allison and George R. Goethals In Part 1 of this series, we introduced the concept of the Heroic Leadership Dynamic, which we define as a system of psychological forces that can explain how humans are drawn to hero stories, how they benefit from these stories, and how the stories help people become heroes themselves. We suspect that early humans first told hero stories at the end of the day, in the darkness, huddled around fires. These narratives supplied meaning, hope, and a welcome escape from the miseries of life. We propose that people benefit from hero stories in at least two essential ways. Theologian Richard Rohr argues that hero stories encourage people to think transrationally about ideas that seem to defy rational analysis. Hero stories reveal truths and life patterns that our limited minds have trouble understanding using our best logic or rational thought.

Hero stories unlock the secrets of the transrational. How do hero tales help us think transrationally? A. B. Harriet Tubman Wins Poll for Woman on $20 Bill.

Harriet Tubman Wins Poll for Woman on $20 Bill

More than 600,000 people voted in the online poll, and Tubman won with over 33% of the vote, beating runner-up Eleanor Roosevelt by 7,000 votes. Tubman was an escaped slave and abolitionist who devoted her life to working as a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, helping other slaves get to safety. She also served as a spy and scout for the Union Army during the Civil War. The $20 bill currently features former President Andrew Jackson. “Our paper bills are like pocket monuments to great figures in our history,” Women On 20s Executive Director Susan Ades Stone said in a statement.
