He had a school named after him in New Orleans. This photo was hanging in the Thomy Lafon Elementary School in Central City New Orleans when it was demolished in 2011. It was rescued from a dumpster by a teacher who had taught at the school while the school was being demolished. He kept the photograph for a couple of years and donated it to the Amistad Research Center prior to moving from New Orleans in 2014. Explain that if their item were dropped off to an archive it would be a primary source. Explain to them that their next task would be to create a story as a group using the archival process “From Creation to Classroom” handout. Divide the students into groups of 5 or 6. Explain to them the following steps and handout Worksheet #2: 1. Create a story using the archiving process. 2. Decide what the document or item will be. 3. Decide who will be the creator. 4. Decide how it got to the archives. 5. Someone will be the archivist. 6. The archivist will preserve it. 7. Then you all will present the item or document to the class as an archivist. Explain that they will use the vocabulary words and the “From Creation to Classroom” handout to create a story about how the item got to the “School Name” Archives. They can choose to present the story in any way they would like. For example, they can do a re-enactment of all characters involved through a skit, a visual presentation, an audio presentation, etc. Give them time to work on it in class the same day or the next class period. Presentations should follow as the third class session. SLAVERY & ABOLITION CURRICULUM GUIDE 7
