History timelines

For many people — especially white folk — in the US, there is a persistent amnesia, or even ignorance, of the history of racial injustice and the resistance movements seeking to overcome it. It can really help our work to dismantle racism by learning this history. Two very useful timelines are available, as a beginning “hook” to ignite interest. This one is being developed by the Equal Justice Initiative in Alabama, and this one was originally created to accompany the PBS documentary “Race, the power of an illusion.”
