A standards-linked resource packet for teaching about African American History and Culture in Rhode Island

The Haffenreffer Museum has developed these materials to provide you and your students useful information, project and activity suggestions and resource materials that can complement your studies of African Americans in Rhode Island from slavery to the current day. This packet expands on the themes that are covered during the Sankofa: African Americans in Rhode Island outreach program, but can be used independently of the Museum program.

The first lessons discuss the role of slavery around the world, the experiences of enslaved Africans in Rhode Island and the roles of Rhode Islanders in ending slavery in the state. The final lessons explore current race relations which will lead to the awareness of modern slavery and current social issues in our society that stem from this historic process.
Each lesson contains an informational piece that provides your students background information. You may choose to have your students use these sections for group, partner, or independent reading.

Following each information piece will be one or two ready-to-use lesson plan activities. These materials were written for grades six through eight; however, you can adapt the information and activities provided in this packet to the appropriate learning levels of your students. We also suggest some web sites and books that you and your students can use in your classroom to learn more about each topic.

A printed version of this packet is also available for purchase at http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/sankofa-african-americans-in-rhode-island/12887895.
