Setting the Pace for Racial Tolerance

U.S. Must Set Pace for Racial Tolerance, says Mrs. Roosevelt

Overview

Students analyze an historical newspaper article to learn about a 1944 conference on building better race relationships and identify the claim that keynote speaker first lady Eleanor Roosevelt made about the need for the U.S. to set the pace for the rest of the world and provide supporting evidence for that claim. After, students consider the relevance the article has today and create a product to demonstrate their understanding.
