About this Grantee

During the summer, Ms. Pegram and Ms. Yates engage their underserved middle school students in a summer enrichment program on civil rights. Students learn about efforts to desegregate public schools, and interview local African Americans about their educational experiences in the 1950s and 1960s. Students host a community forum and deliver presentations that showcase civil rights stories based on the interviews.
