Primary source materials are essential in teaching children how to think like an historian. These materials make them think about their place in time and compare it to other place in time. I showed these images to my students before I introduced the term “inequality” and there were all over it. They knew about this dark part of American history but when they saw the actual images, it spawned a lot of talk about inequality and the civil rights movement.
