Did you know that 15-year-old, Claudette Colvin, refused to give up her seat on the bus nine months before Rosa Parks? Did you know this was happening during the same time NASA hired African American women do the mathematical equations to launch rockets into space? As the civil rights movement marched towards equality and ending segregation, NASA launched rockets to explore space.
How was the civil rights movement similar to the BLM movement of today? What can we learn from NASA’s hidden figures, Mae Jemison, Claudette Colvin, Bubba Wallace, Colin Kaepernick and others? This class connects the past and present using theater games, online activities and puzzles. Students will explore NASA's race to space and people who have changed our world, while creating their own videos to share with family and friends. Are you a hidden hero?
