What: This lesson explores what gave those boys and girls the power to stand up for what was right during the Civil Rights Movement; how they reacted to the messages they were getting from society; and what today’s students can learn from those experiences. As part of this discussion, students will draw parallels between today’s gender issues and the Civil Rights movement.
