This example of coursework is answering a slightly different question but it looks like a helpful example.

I googled "black rights history coursework" and quite a few helpful links come up.

Depends on what angle you want to approach this in. I would say that the Emancipation Proclamation is a turning point in the struggle for black rights because of its symbolic gesture, however, since it was not binding (only applicable to states that seceded) it was only a symbolic gesture that had no legal binding meaning. Besides then came the Jim Crow laws which basically put back a lot of progress that was made in the struggle for black rights.

I honestly don't know what angle to approach with as our teacher wants us to do it independently so I'm just looking for any kind of guidance haha. Thank you.

Do you have any specific preference of what stance you want to take? History can be argued from many different perspectives.
