More Than a Mapp is a free iPhone and iPod app that allows users to discover and contribute to the African American history that exists all around us. The location-enabled application can reveal sites of significance to black history in your city, and allows you to upload map points of your own. The crowd-sourced and moderated data will grow to reveal that history doesn’t just live in books; it has a presence in the everyday places we find ourselves.
The educator’s guide is designed to help students explore the rich history of African Americans throughout the United States through discussion, debate, research, and hands-on activities. The guide can be used as a curriculum companion to both the More Than a Mapp interactive map, as well as to the film More Than a Month.
