I was not aware of Project C or its purpose, to fill the jails with civil rights protestors so their cases and voices would be heard in court. Thanks for hosting this event.

I like that she felt inspired to teach us what she hadn't known. Also-super cool she used real people, met them, and walked the march.

I learned from the review that this is story of the courage of people to stand up to inequality and that you highly recommended it for adults as well.
