"On this day, 56 years ago (1955), in Brookhaven, Miss., Lamar Smith was shot dead on the courthouse lawn by a white man in broad daylight while dozens of people watched. The killer was never indicted because no one would admit they saw a white man shoot a black man. Smith had organized blacks to vote in a recent election."
Very cute lesson for voting! Voter registration cards, voting ballots, students create a small sign to get others to vote for the “best book” according to them, voting chart and ending with a writing activity!
