Sankofa – History – The International Civil Rights Center and Musem

February 10, 2010

Strong Brothers in 1960

This month is a great time to rededicate yourself to learning something new about your history! I try to find a black history fact, historical figure or event that I don’t know much about and learn more…..become an expert on the topic. With the web at our disposal we can do so much more now!

I just learned about the new Civil Rights Center and Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina!  This museum is dedicated to educating the public about the lunch counter sitin that occurred in this city February 1st 1960 and the brave young North Carolina A&T students that conducted it!

 

This year marks the 50th  Anniversary of this historical event. Be sure to stop by the site and check out the wonderful historic pictures!! I hope to visit the museum in a couple of weeks…teach my children about the struggle that occured which allows them to have the “freedom” they enjoy!

The International Civil Rights Center and Museum is open Tue thru Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday 1pm to 5pm.
It would be great to get a nice size group together to visit!

I will be sure to share pictures when we go!
Ok, now it is your turn…..Sankofa……what will you find?
