The Virginia Holocaust Museum along with Facing History and Ourselves and the Moton Museum presents “Choices in Little Rock.” This one day workshop will be taught by Facing History and Ourselves’, senior historian Dr. Mary Johnson.
This year’s topic will focus on the efforts to desegregate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957. Participants will explore the importance of civic choices. Those decisions, both then and now, reveal that democracy is not a product but a work in progress. Although those choices may not seem important at the time, little by little, they define an individual, delineate a community, and ultimately distinguish a nation.
Register for this event below under the Details tab or call 804-257-5400 ext. 234. This workshop is free for educators and includes lunch and Facing History and Ourselves classroom resources. A certificate of attendance will be awarded to participants at the conclusion of the workshop. The session is limited to 35 participants.
This workshop is fully booked. To be put on a wait list in case registrants drop, please email Megan Ferenczy.
