#30DayEducationChallenge Day 12: The Marches

Thursday, July 2, 2020

Today we're talking about the marches that shaped the Civil Rights Movement. Day 8 talked about the Freedom Riders, The March on Washington, and Selma - I encourage you to click around the timeline we read to learn more about these marches.

But today we're talking about a group that doesn't get as much coverage but who greatly shaped the movement: the CHILDREN. Yes, children - get your tissues ready because this is incredibly inspiring, moving, and devastating. And since we are talking about marches, I also want to make sure we all see videos that document different angles of these peaceful protests than what we are used to seeing.

📺The Children's March (35 minutes)

Reflection questions (journal, discuss with your group, or join the conversation on Instagram):
  1. How did the Children's March documentary make you feel? 
  2. What is something new you learned?
  3. What is something that surprised you? 
  4. What is something from the Children's March that we still see today?
