Thursday, March 7, 2013 8:00am - 3:15pm
In 1963, the long struggle against racial discrimination in American intensified - with a children's crusade in Birmingham, the March on Washington and a landmark civil rights bill from the Kennedy administration. This year, we mark these and other milestone events from that time with a conference that celebrates the courage and resolve of those who sought to make the promise of freedom and justice a reality for all.
Our program features remarkable individuals who played a part in the fight for civil rights during the 1960s, as well as award-winning authors who have brought this pivotal chapter in American history to life for young readers. Join us to consider how their stories can be used to inspire students to speak out against intolerance and injustice in today's world.
