2200 NINTH GRADE STUDENTS BUS DOWN TO CIRCLE CINEMA FOR SCREENING & PRESENTATION

It took five days giving a morning and and afternoon presentation each day but we shared the film with 2200 ninth graders from Tulsa Public Schools! It was fantastic!

 

Superintendent Deborah Gist introduced the series to Tulsa Public School students.

 

The kids respond so well to Congressman John Lewis’s words of wisdom.

 

I begin the talk with sharing what its like to make a film.

 

Then the students ask questions from some of the original sit-inners.

 

We end the presentation singing freedom songs, which the kids continued singing on the buses back to school.

 

Thank you Mary Jane Snedecker Director of Social Studies for Tulsa Public Schools. She organized everything. (Seen here with Ayanna Najuma, one of the Sit-inners).
Our crew!
