Civil Rights History Timeline Project

Create a Positive/Negative Civil Rights Timeline

Using resources such as books, videos and the Internet, create a list of events to include on your timelines. Rank timeline events according to perceived historical significance. The most significant positive ranking would be a +5, and the most significant negative ranking would be a -5. For example, if you include the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., you would likely rank it as a -5.

You are required to include 40 events on your timeline. You should write/type a brief explanation of each event you include on the timeline.
Timelines can be made from various materials -- graph paper, construction paper or tag board.
