  • European Crosspoint Anti Racism - links to organizations all over the world in the field of Human Rights, anti-racism, refugees, antisemitism, women, labour, antifascism etc. Also links to Jewish organizations, migrant organizations and others, all listed by continent and country.
  • We Hold These Truths To Be Self Evident - This site examines multiculturalism and democratic principles within the context of schools. Developed by San Diego State University's College of Education.
  • Diversity- This link is part of History/Social Studies Web Site for K-12 Teachers. It is listed under "Other Social Studies Pages," but is also highlighted here as well. You will be surprised about how difficult it is to find good links on "diversity" on the Web. This is a great place to start.
  • Internet Resources for African American Music, from the Archives of African American Music and Culture at Indiana University. Again, inactive at the present time, but keep it mind. For now, try the African American Sources on Internet page for some incredible links.
  • Britannica Guide to Black History - Begin your examination of black history today! The site has 400 years of African-American history spanning across five distinct periods of time. The site offers music, speeches, and video presentations in addition to primary sources and secondary information. A definitive reference site. Lesson plans that involve examining a topic of history over time could easily draw upon this site. Provides some good interactive options.
  • Index of Native American Resources on the Internet - This site has compiled most of the resources available on the Net dealing with Native Americans. Culture, history, education, language, health, indigenous knowledge, Native American art, plus much, much more! Save valuable time searching the Web for information on Native Americans--this is the site to use. Great resource for inquiry projects!
  • Ken Burns' "New Perspectives on the West" Another multimedia contribution by Ken Burns and family. Sponsored by PBS and General Motors, the site provides a plethora of information on people, events, photos, art, and primary sources from West-- many of the perspectives are from individuals who are usually overlooked by traditional historians. Not stuck in the nineteenth century, Burns' spans across time to illustrate the diversity of western America. The presentation and the interactive options of the site will hook students and teachers alike.
