Mini-Class: The Civil Rights Movement in the North

When: Friday, April 17
Time: 11 am PST / 2 pm EST
Where: Zoom Meeting
Cost: FREE

In support of middle and high school teachers, while school buildings are closed, the Zinn Education Project is hosting online people’s historians mini-classes. The Zinn Education Project is a collaboration between Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change.  Did you know that the biggest civil rights demonstration of the 1960s happened in New York City? Did you know that at the same time people were pressing for desegregation in Montgomery and Birmingham, they were doing so in Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Detroit, and Boston? Join us for a conversation on the Civil Rights Movement outside the South. The session will be led by historian and author Jeanne Theoharis and high school teacher/Rethinking Schools editor Jesse Hagopian.
