LTFC Storytellers Experience
During this 1.5-hour visit to the TEP Center, students participate in a guided museum tour, complete a Civil Rights Activity and engage in a Q & A with Leona Tate. The tour sparks conversation about the rich history of the Lower Nine. Dr. Tate gives a glimpse of the events of the Civil Rights Era through the eyes of a history maker.
The three core goals of this experience were to:
Increase student’s awareness of about Civil Rights history and aid in the development of tolerance and empathy.
Encourage students to explore new interests, develop confidence, and build self-esteem.
Emphasize to students the need to understand their past while continuing to build their future.
