Minnijean Brown Trickey of the Little Rock 9

On May 16th Kehillah's Jacklyn Guzman hosted a awesome guest speaker for her US History Class. They had the amazing honor to hear Minnijean Brown Trickey speak about her experience as one of the Little Rock Nine, nine students selected to integrate Central high school in Little Rock. Minnijean was a member of the Little Rock Nine during the Civil Rights movement and continues her work today with the Sojourn to the Past Project.

We were able to capture the visit twice.  The first was EJ, a student, using the livescribe pen.  Her notes work as an awesome index of Minnijean's talk.

We also had the good fortune of capturing a video of her visit.  Minnijean was an awesome speaker.  She really connected with the students and spent the whole hour responding to their questions.
