Breaking the Chains: Rising Out of Circumstances

Study history through photographs. In this visual arts and history lesson, high schoolers learn to analyze photographs to discover details about life during the Civil War era. Students write journal entries as if they are the African-American individuals pictured in the photographs. High schoolers will then artistically represent a picture of a moment surrounding the Emancipation Proclamation.
