NAACP Timeline.jpg

Last week I had the opportunity to take part in a fantastic event - the unveiling of the NAACP Interactive Historical Timeline.

The timeline is a unique, engaging educational tool that brings the stories of the NAACP's history and the civil rights movement to life through words, pictures and video.

From information on W.E.B. Du Bois and the founding of the NAACP to the election of Barack Obama, the NAACP Historical Timeline will be an ever growing source of valuable information for students, teachers and parents.
