African American Healers: Masters of Medicine

Cover Sample Spread 
order this print and read a spread download a complete sample

Throughout history, African American doctors have had larger roles than medicine alone. This new Black History supplement teaches students how African American doctors were at the forefront of the Anti-Slavery and Civil Rights Movements and how they showed what blacks in America could accomplish while fighting injustice. Supplement comes with a FREE Teacher Guide that can extend deliveries of newspapers up to four weeks. Because creation of this supplement was made possible by the support of Ford Motor Company Fund, it is branded with the Fund logo and includes a quarter-page thank you ad acknowledging the Fund’s support on the inside back cover. NIE programs are free, however, to seek local sponsorship, and to use the back page to acknowledge local sponsors. The support of Ford Motor Company Fund may open doors for sponsorship by local Ford dealerships. No competing auto companies may be sponsors. These materials are not available in Michigan.

Sample Newspaper Activity
