Shades Cahaba Elementary. Not only did my girls and I attend school there, but I taught third grade for 19 years. I was invited by my friend and fellow teacher Delaine Ragland to come and speak to her class about what it was like growing up in Birmingham during the Civil Rights Movement here in Birmingham. Delaine found my comments on Kids in Birmingham 1963, which is a wonderful resource for teachers and students as well.
We had a wonderful time together and her students were a terrific audience and asked some excellent questions. I'm looking forward to visiting their classroom again at the culmination of their study to see them present what they learned.
