Students from the all-black school in Selma, Ala., will get a chance to witness history – and wear their new winter parkas. One teacher made it happen.
(She wanted) the children to see beyond graffiti-strewn walls, beyond limitations, beyond a town where violence is a daily reality. She wants them to witness something people in this racially torn bastion of the civil rights movement never believed was possible. She wants them to see a black man become president of the United States, to hear his voice ring out across the National Mall and know that anything is possible. (Christian Science Monitor)
