“The Children’s March” – Screening & Discussion with Youth
“The Children’s March” tells the story of how the young people of Birmingham, Alabama braved fire hoses and police dogs in 1963 and brought segregation to its knees. Their heroism exemplifies the ability of young people to be catalysts for positive social change.
Following the screening, The DuSable Museum’s Department of Education team, along with teen activists, will engage young guests in a discussion on why political movements must involve children as well as adults. Students will leave empowered to make a difference in the world now!
