Year 11 - Civil Rights Leadership Conference

Students in 11i took part in a "Civil Rights Leadership Conference" in which each person represented an individual that was important to a civil rights movement in the past. These placards represent a few of the leaders that were chosen and the short biography that was presented at the beginning of the conference. Students then engaged in a discussion which covered the advantages and disadvantages of various strategies when fighting to make a change in society. They discussed the roles of passive resistance, violent opposition, legal changes, and social media in relation to different movements. It was a great conference and all the students exhibited respectful behavior and an interest in promoting a more peaceful future
