When we try to imagine slavery and the emancipation era in the United States, the experiences and activism of black children rarely come to mind. This IS focuses on the lived experiences of black youth within the period of 1865-1914 and looks specifically at topics such as slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the making of Jim Crow. Additionally, as a digital IS I hope that my audience can fully understand the challenges that black youth faced during the period through a virtual museum. In conclusion, I hope, this project allows for the user of the digital environment to gain a new perspective on the impact that black children’s activism and resistance had in the South from 1865-1914.
