Students at Windsor State Street School have been studying "The Long Journey to Freedom." They have been recently learning about Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.
On Monday March 28th, second graders at Windsor State Street School had the opportunity to do a Zoom Chat interview with a man who was a teenager in Montgomery Alabama during the Civil Rights Movement. "Mr. Dale" Morrison is the father of a staff member at Windsor. He shared stories about his life as a white teenager living amongst the movement, and stories about being a Law Student at the University of Alabama during the integration.
Students had the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the interview. Questions asked included:
1) What percentage of people were voting for segregation vs the amount of people who were voting for integration?
2) What was school like for you as a kid?
3) Did you ever participate in the marches?
4) Did you hear Martin Luther King Jr. give speeches?
5) Did you ever meet Rosa Parks?
Our interview was recorded for future classes to view. If you would like to hear more about the interview, please contact Angela Dougher.
