Smith, Spencer J. – American Educational History Journal, 2019
In a time of political turmoil in which both women (#MeToo) and black people (#BlackLivesMatter) are fighting to be heard and recognized, it is worthwhile to look at the past to perhaps uncover new narratives that can give direction. Citizenship Schools provided a way for civil rights activists to civically engage individuals who were previously…

DiGenio, Natasha – American Educational History Journal, 2016
The cases analyzed in this essay exemplify both the influence of the sexual revolution and the conservative backlash against it. Topics that were once considered obscene were now seen as educational. Without this greater openness, none of these court cases would have been possible. In fact, people fighting against censorship and repression…

Poos, Bradley W. – American Educational History Journal, 2016
The year 1968 denotes a particularly salient moment in American history, not least because it marks the year in which the Civil Rights movement lost its charismatic leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. The assassination of King on April 4, 1968, resulted in widespread and spontaneous uprisings across the country, including one in Kansas City. Not…

McInnis, Edward – American Educational History Journal, 2016
Reformers during the antebellum period of American history frequently expressed contradictory ideas on the topic of female education.

Hussain, Khuram – American Educational History Journal, 2014
In the 1960s, "Muhammad Speaks" and "Black Panther" were widely known for their sensational rhetoric and calls for radical social reform.

Smilie, Kipton D.; Smilie, Ethan K. – American Educational History Journal, 2014
As has been noted in previous studies, the great social significance of the schoolhouse in a community, the fact that it served often both as the literal center of a community as well as its social center, afforded teachers greater opportunity to interact with students outside school doors. Compared to today, teachers were considerably more likely…

Breitborde, Mary-Lou – American Educational History Journal, 2013
The Civil War ended slavery but not the pernicious inequality of power and status that still characterizes relations between black and white America. As soon as they could, with the help of presidents bent on appeasement and the benign neglect of northerners who had fought the war to preserve the union but not necessarily to invite former slaves…

After the Civil War, schooling for African Americans was irregular and consisted mainly of elementary grades.

The National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS or Council), founded in 1921, is the premiere professional association in the social studies field.
