    Project the image above and ask students to comment on what they see.  


    • When do you think this photo was taken?  Why do you think that?
    • Where do you think it was taken?  What details led you to believe that?
    • What do you think is happening in the photo?
    • Hold old do you think the people in the photo are?
    • If it doesn't come up, ask students what they know about segregation.

    Video: No More

    After watching the video, refer back to the image projected earlier. Ask children if their opinions about what was going on have changed. Have them substantiate their answers with what they saw in the video.
