Wanted!!! Talented Writers
Many events have taken place during the Civil Rights Movement. Your assignment is to research two events of the movement and write a brief news article and editorial.

Each newsletter must include the following:

The Emmett Till Case

The March on Washington

Brown vs. the Board of Education

The March on Selma

The Montgomery Bus Boycott

Freedom Rides

Little Rock Nine

The Birmingham Church Bombing

Mississippi Freedom Summer Project

Rights vocabulary in both your articles.
