Part 1 of TeachRock's Segregation and Integreation in Asbury Park collection, this lesson provides students with clips from the film Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock & Roll. They will examine documents in order to gain a deeper understanding of segregation as it has been practiced in the Northern United States, both in the past and today. Students will also consider the role music has played in segregated Asbury Park. In Part 1, students explore the founding of Asbury Park and the city’s history up to 1970, and debate the extent to which music played a role in integrating the city.
