Education for All explores how individuals share personal stories about overcoming conflict.

By reviewing personal testimony, students will consider the difficult choices that individuals must make when working to make a difference in their community.

Students will listen to the testimony of Savannah residents that were among the first group of Black students to integrate public schools, and read NAACP pamphlets written in 1964 to celebrate those students.


After completing the lesson students will be better able to:

- Examine spoken testimony for facts and details.
- Identify the causes and effects of important decisions.
- Discuss the choices that they make.
- Use the museum resources to explore Savannah's history.
