Created Equal: Image, Sound, and Story - February 5 & February 15

Created Equal: Image, Sound, and Story is an interdisciplinary curriculum and professional development program that prepares eighth graders to learn the history of a seminal moment in the Civil Rights movement in America, understand the power of people and the media to advance social change, and share their own story about racial justice through the creation of multimedia arts projects. Students are empowered as historians, storytellers, media makers, and social activists as they grow to understand how the past and the present are connected, shaped, and shared.
