This unit is one of a series that presents specific moments in history from which students focus on the meanings of landmark events. The lessons included in this unit attempt to make slavery comprehensible to students, showing its oppressiveness and yet explaining how white Southern culture rationalized and sustained it. The unit also explains how blacks resisted the dehumanizing aspects of slavery and in the process created a distinct African American culture. Finally these lessons present the abolitionists, black and white, male and female, and develop appreciation for their courage, conviction, and understanding. Students should be exposed to people whose foresight and principles, while putting them at odds with the prevailing beliefs of their contemporaries, helped to shape the attitudes of future Americans. This unit should help students see the importance of being active and thoughtful members of society. White Southerners were ordinary people not very different from contemporary Americans. Students should be taught that unless people are educated to reflect actively on the values that shape society, they are likely to accept those values uncritically. With the aid of this unit, students should see racism as a disease that threatens all people's freedom while crippling the judgement of those infected. This unit contains six lesson plans: (1) the justification of slavery and its effect on whites; (2) slave labor; (3) African-American culture forged in bondage; (4) slave resistance; (5) abolition, the leaders and their ideas; and (6) abolition and women's rights. Contains 16 references. (Dk)
