        Black Spaces in White America

        Through class discussion and film analysis, students explore the ways in which African Americans created their own spaces ("Black Spaces") in "White America" and the effect that these spaces had on the success of African Americans. Specifically, students consider the ways in which an all-black school provided unique opportunities that ceased to exist after desegregation was mandated by the courts in Brown v. Board of Education. The culminating activity in this lesson is a graded discussion in which students debate the impact of the creation of and destruction of black spaces on African Americans.
