Summary

This accession consists of the "Oh Freedom!: Teaching African American Civil Rights through American Art at the Smithsonian" website, crawled on August 6, 2018. The website is jointly maintained by the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. It offers a new introduction to the Civil Rights movement through the unique lens of Smithsonian Institution collections by drawing connections among art, history, and social change and providing educators with tools to help students re-imagine and reinterpret the struggle for civil rights, justice, and equality in fresh ways. It includes a timeline, collections information, lesson plans, bibliographies, teaching guides, and student projects. The website was retired shortly after it was crawled. Server files for the website were also transferred. Materials are in electronic format.
