Montgomery Bus Boycott: A Victory for Civil Rights – Speakeasy News Sixty years ago, on 20 December, 1956, Martin Luther King and his fellow campaigners won a first victory in the long battle for African-American civil rights. The Montgomery Bus Boycott, which had begun when Rosa Parks famously refused to move to the back of the bus, finally ended after 381 days, when the Supreme Court ruled bus segregation illegal. But Rosa Parks wasn’t the first African American woman to refuse to give up her seat in a Montgomery bus. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on 1 December, 1955. In the previous year, four other women had refused to move seats. Colvin was arrested. But Colvin wasn’t forgotten. Boycott When Rosa Parks, a middle-aged, eminently respectable NAACP activist refused to move to the back of the bus, this time the community felt it had found its spokesperson. In parallel, the NAACP decided it was time to challenge bus segregation in court. Webpicks Useful websites and online tools for classroom use > African American History on the Web

Tes One reacted to Trayvon Martin's death and the state's initial inability to bring charges against his killer. "Calling out the injustice became far more important than any hesitation I was personally feeling," he says. After a grand jury declined to indict the NYPD officer who killed Eric Garner, Carly Larsson says she drew an image on location in New York City's Foley Square to "record the protest, and to capture the mood and energy." That grand jury's decision inspired Carson Ellis to comb through the database of police killings that resulted in fatalities of unarmed African Americans. Ellis's image was widely shared, so she got "to experience plenty of backlash. . . . Nikkolas Smith says that when he visually interprets these events, "there's a bittersweet sense of reluctant sadness and gratifying accomplishment. "It's therapy," he adds.

US enters new phase as women change the face of Congress Among the historic class of new congresspeople who took the oath of office in the US House of Representatives on Thursday are the first Native American women, the first Muslim women, the first black women elected from Massachusetts and Connecticut, the first Hispanic women elected from Texas, and the youngest woman to be elected to Congress. There is a former NFL linebacker, a doctor and a climate scientist. There are a number of former members of the military and intelligence services, many of them women. There are seasoned veterans of past presidential administrations and a handful of political neophytes who never held office before running for Congress in 2018. A record 102 women were sworn into the House on Thursday, 35 of whom were elected for the first time in November in a historic wave of success for female candidates. “We’re in the building. Democrats regained control of the House on Thursday eight years after losing power. TODAY (@TODAYshow)“I think of it is a responsibility.

February is Black History Month – Speakeasy News It’s changed names and format several times since 1924, but February is the month when schools, cultural institutions and the general public celebrate the African-Americans whose stories have often been left out of official history books. The celebration of black history is credited to Dr Carter G. Woodson, an African-American historian with a doctorate from Harvard, who helped found the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History in 1915. The ASNLH launched the Negro History and Literature Week in 1924, and by the late 1960s the week had turned into a month. Why February? February was chosen because it contains the birthdays of two Americans who played a prominent role in African American history: President Abraham Lincoln, who signed the Emancipation Proclamation and took the country into civil war over the question of slavery.Frederick Douglass, who escaped slavery, opened an abolitionist newspaper and became the first African American to hold high government office.

La leçon de The Roots sur l’esclavage Aux Etats-Unis, le 19 juin est le jour de l’Emancipation. Un jour férié pour célébrer l’annonce de l’abolition de l'esclavage survenue au Texas en juin 1865, deux mois après la fin de la guerre de Sécession. C’est cet événement historique méconnu en Europe qu’ont choisi de célébrer les créateurs de l’excellente série Black-ish dans leur nouvelle saison, en invitant The Roots par le biais d’un clip animé en forme de cartoon pédagogique. Durant près de deux minutes, Black Thought et Questlove se retrouvent ainsi plongés dans le sud Confédéré, au milieu des plantations de coton et des marchés aux esclaves. Sous le joug des propriétaires sudistes texans, ils chantent leur blues dans ce « I’m a Slave » et expliquent à un jeune garçon les détails de cette période sombre en pastichant l’ancienne et très populaire série éducative américaine Schoolhouse Rock!

American civil rights movement American civil rights movement, March on WashingtonUPI/Bettmann/Corbismass protest movement against racial segregation and discrimination in the southern United States that came to national prominence during the mid-1950s. This movement had its roots in the centuries-long efforts of African slaves and their descendants to resist racial oppression and abolish the institution of slavery. Although American slaves were emancipated as a result of the Civil War and were then granted basic civil rights through the passage of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution, struggles to secure federal protection of these rights continued during the next century. Through nonviolent protest, the civil rights movement of the 1950s and ’60s broke the pattern of public facilities’ being segregated by “race” in the South and achieved the most important breakthrough in equal-rights legislation for African Americans since the Reconstruction period (1865–77).

Apprentissage réussi des langues avec le « labo » tout numérique et la « balado » Avec l’enseignement de l’anglais obligatoire depuis 2005 dès le cycle 2, les enfants du premier degré sont censés acquérir les bases pour être au même niveau que leurs voisins et «rentrer dans le moule» du Cadre Européen commun de référence pour les langues. Dans les faits, des témoignages de parents d’élèves affirment que les heures attribuées à l’anglais à l’école primaire sont épisodiques : la machine n’est donc pas en marche partout de manière homogène. Et alors que Luc Châtel déclarait en janvier, vouloir «réinventer l’apprentissage de l’anglais», en suggérant un enseignement dès l’âge de trois ans, il va bien falloir trouver des moyens d’apprentissage novateurs pour faire apprendre les langues à nos bambins… Les Nouvelles Technologies peuvent-elles répondre à ce défi ? Quels sont les atouts du Laboratoire de langues tout numérique et de la baladodiffusion pour cet apprentissage « obligatoire« . Gain de temps et plus de pratique pour le laboratoire tout numérique
