Resource: Smithsonian Online Cultural History Tours

It looks like the Smithsonian Institution doesn't want to be outdone by the Library of Congress in reaching teachers with images of artifacts they can use in their classrooms. The educational arm of the Smithsonian museums has created virtual tours for students and teachers to explore African-American and Latino history.

The tours feature artifacts such as Mohammed Ali's 1974 red boxing gloves and Roberto Clemente's Pittsburgh Pirates uniform.

The African-American tour is available now, and the Latino one will soon be posted (in the meantime, check out the Smithsonian Latino Virtual Museum), according to a press release announcing this new feature. The tours can also be used to plan a visit to the Smithsonian's museums.
