Celebrating Black History

Dear Educators,

Here at Maps101 we are celebrating Black History Month and want to support you in teaching some of the African American Heroes who have weaved the tapestry of American History. This week we are highlighting an article, a map, an interactive Lesson Map and an entire collection of other resources that you can use to bring these figures and events to life!

Geography News Network

In the coming weeks our GNN articles will all feature several historic African American Heroes, this week we are starting with “The Greatest,” Muhammed Ali. This GNN article focuses on how Cassius Clay became Muhammed Ali and the journey that took him on.

Muhammed Ali's Famous Fights

Our Map of the week this week focuses on Muhammed Ali’s famous fights! He traveled the world floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee, but where?

Interactive Lesson

Civil Rights in the United States is certainly not a finished subject. The fight continues. Along the way there have been many historic court cases, this Lesson Map takes students on a journey through the courtrooms of history.
