Readings for the weekend
Lewis asked me if he could continue on in Letters from Mississippi.I told him yes, so students who would like to begin responding to School for Freedom. I have added a cuber-post.
Children of the Movement
We also spoke about the next generation, the children of these leaders in the movement for social justice. Students were assigned the first part of Chapter 7, pages 227-237. We will also read the chapter: The Next Generation and the profiles on Chaka Foreman and James Foreman Jr. These men are examples of children who have taken up the social change mantle.
