Here are a few photographs of the civil rights workshop and tours we hosted today with over 200 students from Smith Middle. Many thanks to community leaders who led the tours, and to the school’s namesakes Mr. and Mrs. Smith (pictured here) who came out in the cold to talk to students about their role in shaping education here in Chapel Hill!
Thoughts from Hudson:
A great job to Elizabeth, Jasmine, and Brentton who organized the workshops and taught youth about the local movement by bringing it to life. This is what intergenerational education is all about. One of the administrators from Smith Middle laughed as he said he knew Brentton as a middle school student there and loved seeing him do an “amazing job” presenting and leading the group in freedom songs
