We crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge on our way out of Selma. Students were moved by the experience. They were asked by Ms. Joanne Bland to think about the history of the bridge as they began their trek. By the end of the bridge she wanted students to have committed to making change in their own world to create justice for all. On the bus we talked about the social justice we plan to work toward when we return to Wisconsin.
At Little Rock Central High School and the Visitors Center we learned about the Little Rock Nine and their experience integrating Little Rock Central High School.
