Social Studies: The Ideology of Slavery

Students examine the development of racial stereotyping beginning with the antebellum years. They research how blackface minstrel songs reinforced the antebellum mindset of African-Americans. Secondly, students investigate "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and how it challenged these stereotypes. They also assess the southern response and their sense of alienation after the Civil War.
