Black History

Voices of Civil Rights
Last class, my English teacher showed us a Civil Rights video. It was about how different people contributed to equal rights for African Americans. There were even teenagers and children in the marches and sit-ins. They mentioned a seven year old girl who went to an all white school and how she paved the way for desegregation of schools. I saw a movie about that. I forgot what it's called. Post a comment if you find the movie's name. (It was about a little black girl who went to an all white school for the first time)
Anyways, I thought the video was very moving, especially when the teenage African American boy was interviewed at the end on why he was in the protest march. The picture I posted just about says it all.
