SOJOURN GOES TO COLLEGE!
Beginning in January 2012, for the first time in its history, Sojourn to the Past will be teaching a course on a college campus! “Landmarks of Civil Rights” is the focus of a new, sixteen-week course being offered in cooperation with the San Mateo County Community College District on its three campuses: Skyline College, College of San Mateo and Canada College.
Taught by Minnijean Brown-Trickey of the Little Rock Nine and Jeff Steinberg, founder of the nationally honored Sojourn program, the new course will explore the influence of groups and individuals – like Minnijean Brown-Trickey – on political, social and economic changes in local, state and national policy during the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.
Space is limited. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the Civil Rights Movement through the eyes of one of its own, Minnijean Brown Trickey, whose bravery and courage helped end public school segregation in the American South.
The great news about this course is that ANYONE (high school students, college students,
parents, alumni, etc) can enroll and it is FREE for high school students (except
for books and parking passes). However, these classes start in January and are
filling up quickly, so sign up now!
