8th Grade American History Class

Critical Exposure has partnered with an 8th Grade American History class at the Capital City Public Charter Upper School. In their history class, the students are studying the Civil Rights Movement, particularly the Brown vs. Board of Education case of 1954.  CE is joining in this discussion by challenging the students to think about how the stories and experiences of those involved in the Civil Rights Movement were expressed through photography.  Through this discussion, the students have begun to think about their own experiences, what it means to be part of a community, and the character traits of a leader.  They are currently brainstorming topics for their own campaign.
