Hi everyone-just wanted to share some good news. One of my art II students just won an art contest sponsored by the International Civil Rights Museum which is scheduled to open soon in Greensboro, NC in the old Woolworth's building, the site of the sit-ins on Feb. 1, 1960. The theme was "How did the Greensboro Sit-ins Change America?" Her illustrations showed things such as a KKK member, separate facilities, and the 4 students sitting out the lunch counter-all done in black, gray, white. Then it progressed to Pres. Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act and people of all races together, which were done in color. The student attended the celebration of the 45th anniversary last evening and met 3 of the original students and Jesse Jackson, as well as a host of politicians. She will receive a bond and her name engraved on a crystal brick in the museum.
After a week where everything else has gone wrong, this was a nice surprise. Linda
