In this lesson students identify problems and issues facing African Americans immediately after Reconstruction. They work in small groups to research these problems and then, after considering opposing points of view, they suggest possible solutions. From this introductory page teachers can access all the materials needed to complete the lesson. This lesson plan is one of many that can be found on the Learning Page section of the American Memory Web site. This Web site has been created by the Library of Congress to provide public access to over five million historical items from more than 90 collections. Less
