We are pleased to offer this curriculum guide for teachers, parents and others who wish to learn more about the 1968 sanitation strike in Memphis.

The guide was created by educators at the Soulsville Charter School in Memphis, where a portion of “I Am a Man” was filmed in early 2009. It is designed for students at the ninth-grade level, but can be used by all.

Funding for production of the guide was generously provided by the Rev. Audrey Gonzalez of Calvary Episcopal Church in downtown Memphis.
