        Ken Burns: Jackie Robinson | Lesson | Integration or Separation?

        In this lesson, students examine how frustration with the lack of progress in terms of equity, social justice, and access to opportunity for African-Americans bolstered the civil rights movement of the 1960s. They evaluate how this disenfranchisement played a role in forming more militant factions during this period. Next, students assess the dilemma Jackie Robinson faced as a younger generation vocalized new concerns and became actively involved in the movement. Last, students compare and contrast the state of race relations in the 1960s versus today and think critically about what can be done to improve existing conditions
