      This thesis has three parts, a historiography and original research into the impact of rock and roll on civil rights in history, original research, and ending with publishable teaching materials on Rock 'n' Roll and the Civil Rights Movement that will take seven class periods to complete. Five of these class periods are set aside for the students to complete a pod cast for the summative assessment portion of the unit. The lessons are planned for seventy-two minute block classes but can easily be adapted to any class period length .
