Learn all about the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), the Freedom Riders, and the steps that brave African Americans took to help the Civil Rights Movement.

5 out of 5 stars
I was very impressed with this product. My students gained a much deeper understanding of this Civil Rights' event by performing this play rather than just reading about it.
