Presenters: Susan Garr and Chris Johnson As a young Latina immigrant to Alabama’s Black Belt in the 1960’s, Lila Quintero Weaver’s unique perspective on the struggle for justice raises critical questions relevant to all of us today’s: What lessons can we learn about others and ourselves through studying U.S. Civil Rights history? How can the graphic memoir, Darkroom, inform our conversation about what it means to bear witness to injustice? In this interactive, inquiry-based workshop we will share stories, gather information from primary and secondary sources, join in collaborative conversations, ask questions, engage in inquiry stations, and make connections to today’s struggles for equality and social justice. Literacy Specialist Susan A. Garr, MA, believes collaboration matters. Awed by the time, talent and energy that teachers put into their craft, she works with teachers to develop units that bring ideas, passions, and excellent books into the classroom. Chris Johnson, Professional Development Manager at the Center for College Access and Success, believes that it is more important than ever that as citizens and educators we stand up for justice in our world.
