Studies of Civil Rights

Over the last few weeks, Middle School Humanities classes celebrated Black History Month by honoring African Americans that helped pave the way for equal civil and human rights in the United States and around the world. While a comprehensive study of the modern American Civil Rights Movement is covered extensively in the 8th grade curriculum, all three classes participated by creating “art installations” on a Civil Rights event or veteran, or celebrating tolerance and diversity. In addition to their creations, students presented their projects to the class, while discussing racial, religious, and gender equality in our world today, and how we as a community can act as facilitators for equality in the future! Here are a few of the many incredible projects created by our students!
