This new NIE supplement honors African American activists and humanitarians who worked for change, justice, equality and human rights in the United States and the world. Special attention is paid to Coretta Scott King and to Dorothy Height, who has won wide admiration for nearly 70 years working for race and gender equality, social welfare and economic development. Themed sections look at famous and lesser known civil rights leaders, grassroots organizers, artists, entertainers, politicians, lawyers, academic leaders, writers and athletes. Best of all, the supplement concludes with a challenge to students to become active and involved to improve their communities. The supplement comes with a FREE Teachers Guide that can extend deliveries of newspapers up to four weeks. This supplement was made possible by the support of Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services and includes a quarter-page thank you ad acknowledging the Fund’s support on the inside back cover. These materials are not available in Michigan.

Sample Newspaper Activity
Activism in the News — Many grassroots organizers don’t have the money or high-powered contacts to promote their causes or implement expensive, large-scale changes. These organizers have to find creative solutions that are low-cost and effective. Look through the newspaper for an article about a problem facing your community. Make a list of three creative and inexpensive ways that you could raise awareness about this issue. Then write a few paragraphs proposing a way that average citizens could go about solving this problem.
