Actions and Accomplishments of African American Women of the 1940s and 1950s

In September 2018, Redwood EDucational Technologies hosted a Student Symposium at the University of Iowa – Actions and Accomplishments of African American Women of the 1940s and 1950s. The symposium featured Dr. Douglas Brinkley as Keynote Speaker. 

The goal of Students Share Knowledge is to bring high school students together to research and share knowledge about important issues of the day.

Dr. Douglas Brinkley, award winning author and historian, delivered the Keynote Address discussing his book, Rosa Parks: A Life (2000). Students and teachers also heard about Edna Griffin, often called the Rosa Parks of Iowa; African American Rosie the Riveters during WWII; and NASA’s African American women mathematicians, known as human computers. Their amazing story has recently been told by Margot Shetterly, author of Hidden Figures (2016).

The site includes study guides, learning activities, vocabulary lists, and multimedia.
