Also, here's a site about black expulsions which I found in sex and race. It's a flash site. I think it's important to remember the extent of the tragedies that occurred even after slavery had ended. We have this huge national amensia about this- the story is that there was slavery, then black folks disappeared for a few years and then MLK made a speech, and then, all racism against blacks ceased. I like how the series makes connections between the history and the present day as well. I could see this being used in a classroom.
