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.”
