RECONSTRUCTION 360 | The Impact of Reconstruction on Children’s Lives
Enslaved people did not have full rights to their children, or control over their lives. When freedom came, parents could take an active role in the upbringing of their children, leading to stronger parental bonds and more stable families.
Reconstruction 360 is a digital educational program that explores Reconstruction history through humanities themes. This module, 40 Acres and a Mule, focuses on the theme of land and labor as experienced by freedpeople at the close of the Civil War. Set in South Carolina, it features 360-degree interactive video and short documentaries, and includes lesson plans, primary documents, curriculum standards and a geolocative walking tour of Reconstruction sites in downtown Columbia, S.C.
