Students at Granite Hills High School brought a Civil Rights Exhibit to the AVUSD Educational Support Center on May 26.

The "Movement" exhibit was open for display during the entire day, allowing staff, parents, students and community members the opportunity to view the gallery of projects. In preparation for the exhibit, students in Ms. Chaires and Mr. Rivera's history classes each chose a major event, advocate, or a case related to the US Civil Rights Era, or any other US movement in our nation's history toward establishing equality. Students researched their topics and developed written outlines, which eventually came to life through visual aids.

Some examples of project topics/displays included:

-Chicano movement and activists

-Stonewall Riots

-Malcom X

-East LA Walkout

-Brown vs. Board of Education

-LGBT movement

-LA Riots

-Zoot Suit Riots

-Women's Movements/events and activists

-Freedom Writers

-Black Panthers

-Rosa Parks

-Coretta Scott King
