Racism. Civil Rights Movement/ the Children's March Discussions
Just got back from a week of giving talks at Texas A & M - Commerce for Black History Month telling about The Children's March and the Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham, Alabama. I was so impressed by the students' attentiveness and good questions - and struck again by how little that generation knows of the struggles to end segregation. That lack of knowledge was a motivating factor for my writing MARCH WITH ME.
