March 1

Storyboard Text

  • As I read March this summer, I was also working on a pretty extensive project on the Atlanta Student Movement. The whole thing got me thinking. A lot. 
  • In the book, Lewis describes the first time he heard Dr. King speak. 
  • And I remembered the first time I heard Congressman Lewis speak.
  • It was at the Atlanta Women's March. I had never seen so many people before in my LIFE!
  • With Liberty & Justice for ALL.
  • So many people, in fact, that we couldn't get anywhere near him.
  • That didn't matter.  My fiance and I were both in awe.
  • I also thought about my roles as a teacher and...well, a human being.
  • Like many Americans, I had been kickstarted into action by... current events. The Women's March hadn't been my first protest, but after it, I hit the streets more than ever,
  • But I worried about being seen on the news at rougher and rougher demonstrations. At one antifascist rally, tensions were so high I realized suddenly that I'd been calmly waiting to get shot. And I worried about being arrested, no matter how careful I was to protest lawfully.
  • BLACK LIVES MATTER
  • NO MORE
  • But I thought about the day my students participated in the walkout. How mature and genuine they were... 
  • School should B safe
  • And I thought about Lewis and the other brave students...
  • And I think I know in which direction I plan to march.
  • Welcome to 9th Lit! We're going to have a great year!
  • Rally Sat @ 3.
