The Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery exhibition “The Struggle for Justice,” covering the struggle in the U.S. for equal rights for women, African-Americans, Native Americans, the disabled, and gays and lesbians is now online. It includes six video clips narrated by CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, portraits of those people who were instrumental in fighting for justice (like the one of A. Phillip Randolph, right), a lesson plan , related web links and a reading list. We cover human rights in lesson six of The Class of Nonviolence.
