Title:The Construction of Race and Nationalism in United States History
Author(s):McCubbins, Linda
Subject(s):United States history
white racial identity
Geographic Coverage:United States
Abstract:The purpose of the following lesson plans is to illustrate the evolution of the idea of race and how it created white nationalism that persists to this very day. Through readings, film, charts and graphs, students will see that Europeans and Americans constructed an idea of racial inferiority to justify slavery, imperialism and ultimately white superiority. There are also many resources to help tell the story of America’s rich multicultural history. These resources illustrate that although the American population is diverse, the stories of the people who make up the country are quite similar. The stories can help build bridges between people who think they have nothing in common during one of the most polarized eras in United States history.
