In 1957, nine black teenagers faced the threat of angry mobs when they attempted to desegregate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas.
On Monday, March 14, 2016 (11 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) a workshop for teachers will be held at Brookdale Community College to examine this pivotal moment in U.S. history and explore ways to engage students in the issues raised by the American civil rights movement and their implications today. Multiple points of view of various actors who made choices will be examined.
Recommended for middle and high school U.S. history, civics, American studies, English language arts, and humanities teachers.
