Massive Resistance Series in the VA Pilot

The VA Pilot began their six part series on Massive Resistance yesterday.  The series includes a quiz, podcasts, video, an interactive timeline, editorials, and transcripts of letters and speeches.  It is a very interesting series with a wealth of useful information.  Save your newspapers, add the links to your favorites-I think this information will come in handy when teaching about Massive Resistance.

There’s also an article about the events Norfolk has planned to commemorate school integration.  They have quite a few events planned, but the one I want to mention is on February 1, 2009.  On that date the Chrysler Museum will waive it’s admission fee and have an open house for the exhibit “50 years Later:  The Lessons of Massive Resistance.”

How Much Do You Know About Massive Resistance?

There is an on-line quiz (ten questions) in today’s Pilot about Massive Resistance in Virginia.  This year marks the 50th anniversary of Virginia’s response to court ordered desegregation of public schools.  The Pilot will start a series on Massive Resistance on Sunday, September 28th, so be sure to check that out.  It will probably be a good resource to save and use later this year.
