Letters to the Museum

Anti-Racism High School Curricula

I very much like the Jim Crow museum online. Thank you.

I came across some material that may be appropriate to link or to refer to as an academic resource for your site.

Yale and the City of New Haven sponsor a teachers institute every Summer. Much work has been done to produce suggested curricula about the Black experience in America.

Here's a link to the one on lynching:

I originally found the site because I was looking for figures about lynching statistics after Hurricane Katrina. I believe, when all the deaths from Katrina are tallied, more Blacks will turn out to have died from the mal, mis, and nonfeasance of George W. Bush than from all the lynchings put together from reconstruction to the 1960's. (Note that accurate figures about Katrina are hard to find on the net.)

Thank you for the work you do. And may you continue to have much success.
