For over 150 years this story remained undiscovered. “The Story of Pelagie” app was created to bring a face to the many brave African American women who remain faceless in the history books, and whose lives made a real difference in America.
The app provides teachers with a tangible tool so users can move chronologically through the story, jump to a certain subject, or scroll through the timeline to a particular period.
Here are just a few ways the app can engage and enliven history, making history relevant to students’ lives today: *Define the word “freedom” then and now *Analyze a court case *Identify negative stereotypes and how to dispel them *Study an important period in American history *Listen to Pelagie’s present day descendants, both black and white
Once downloaded the app requires a short initial network connection (cellular or Wi-Fi) for content download. From that moment on, the app works 100% offline.
