Exploring the Church in the Southern Black Community

Students explore the Documenting the American South Collection titled, the "Church in the Southern Black Community. Beginning with a historian's interpretation of the primary sources that make up the collection, students search the collection for evidence to describe the experiences of African Americans living in the south during the Antebellum through the Reconstruction Period centering on their community churches. The activity culminates in student presentations of a digital scrap book.
