Birmingham Civil Rights Institute to Offer "Teaching 1963" Workshop

Posted: Updated:

The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute will offer a "Teaching 1963" workshop Saturday, March 9th from 9 am - 1:30 PM.  The workshop is free, and will highlight resources available to teachers on how to incorporate the civil rights movement of 1963 into their classroom.

"1963 Birmingham is a integral part of the American Civil Rights Movement," stated Ah mad Ward, BCRI Head of Education and Exhibitions.  " It is our goal to equip as many teachers as we can with the appropriate tools and information to ensure that their students understand its importance and impact."

 In the workshop, participants will discuss the historical events that led up to the 1963 civil rights movement.  The workshop will share curriculum content that correlates with teaching standards.  It will feature content from the Children's Crusade, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," and the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing.
