We showed CHILDREN OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS to students at OSU in Oklahoma City. Check out what one teacher overhead a OSU student say after seeing the film … Even the president of the university Natalie Shirley stopped by to check it out (seen above). It was a warm welcome indeed.
Special thanks to Dr. Steven Collins for organizing the screening event.
“Showing a film such as the ‘Children of the Civil Rights’ was necessary to personalize the movement for our students,” Dr. Collins said. “They usually read government and history books, and those events seem so far removed from their everyday lives. This film covers events that took place a few miles away from their homes and schools. When you personalize tragedy and triumph, people take a greater interest in the movement. Dr. Baker and I wanted our students to gain a sense of pride and purpose.”
