Wonderful Washington Teachers,
I am excited to be able to introduce you to one of my colleagues in
Philadelphia.  Here is a special online event on Early Civil Rights that
might be of interest to you.  Carol Buswell, Education Specialist, The
National Archives at Seattle.

The National Archives at Philadelphia and Villanova University's Public
History graduate program invite you to an exciting interactive
“Following in their Footsteps: Exploring the Paths of the Early Civil
Rights Movement” 

Monday, May 16, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM.
In this program, hosted by National Archives Education Specialist
Andrea Reidell, Dr. Judith Giesberg’s public history graduate students
will introduce us to some of the nineteenth-century’s Rosa Parks and
Martin Luther Kings, telling the compelling stories of women and men of
color who demanded access to public spaces in the post Civil War era.  

The students, who conducted groundbreaking research based on
nineteenth-century civil rights court cases at National Archives
facilities throughout the country, will also provide several suggestions
for turning these fascinating stories into public history and
educational programs.  
We hope these remarks will begin a conversation that will link the
National Archives with other institutions and individuals interested in
Civil War sesquicentennial programming – and the important forgotten
stories of civil rights after the Civil War.
This presentation is being held at the National Constitution Center in
Philadelphia and will also be available nationally via webinar.
