Choices Teaching with the New Lesson - Black Lives Matter
https://www.choices.edu/teaching-news-lesson/george-floyd-and-the-long-fight-for-racial-justice/ 

Racial injustice is not a new phenomenon and neither is black activism. In fact, the black activism taking place across the country today has deep roots in the history of the United States. Today’s activists build on organizing strategies from the civil rights movement and continue to champion and extend ideals of racial equity shared with each generation before them.

In order to better understand this history and the positions of black activists and social movements today, it is useful to examine significant recent events leading up to the present. The timeline in this lesson provides an overview of many leading people and social movements that steered towards racial equality in the United States beginning in the 1950s and continues to the present. Also included in this Brown University Teaching with the News material is information on how to teach about controversial issues.
