Description

Designed especially for 4th and 5th grade students as a supplement to their developed curriculum, this program provides an 8-minute animated telling of the Audacious, Nebraska Saga — DeWitty, later known as Audacious, was the largest and longest-lasting African American settlement in rural Nebraska. The settlers, including former slaves who had fled to Canada before the Civil War and their descendants, began to arrive in 1906-07, attracted by the 1904 Kinkaid Act’s offer of 640 acres of free land in the Sandhills.    This program comes with pre-teaching supplemental material including vocabulary and a timeline.  Actual Descendants of DeWitty are available for Q&A/discussion on Zoom following the video showing.
