Daughters of the Movement

Throughout our lives we have seen the names and faces of the heroes of the Civil Rights movement. The stories of their heroism forever remain in our hearts and minds as we celebrate the progress that they each worked so hard to achieve. But what are the stories behind these brave men and women? And who are some of the unsung heroes of the movement? Watch an intimate discussion with those who know those historic figures best, two daughters of the movement:
Paula Young Shelton, daughter of activist Andrew Young, GDS 1st grade and HS teacher, and author of Child of the Civil Rights Movement

Karen Gray Houston, daughter of protest leader Thomas Gray, niece of MLK lawyer Fred D. Gray, and author of Daughter of the Boycott: Carrying on a Montgomery Family’s Civil Rights Legacy

The discussion was moderated by Middle School history teacher Toussaint Lacoste.
