Lower School students went to the Civil Rights Museum in January, 2018. There were three floors, each containing a theme. The bottom floor was focused on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. There were many quotes and artifacts to inspire students. The middle floor was dedicated to Civil Rights. It talked about the pain and discrimination that African Americans endured. The top floor talked about Human Rights. There are 30 rights that every human has and no one can take away. It is our job to protect those rights. Overall, the Civil Rights Museum was an amazing, interactive learning experience.
