What would you have done?
It was to be the march following "Bloody Sunday." While protesters didn't know it at the time, officials offered Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. a "turn around" option. What led up to his decision, and what would you have done?
An Interactive Community Event on Zoom
Live discussion of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Struggle for Black Voting Rights, moderated by Anne Arundel County Public School Teachers
Join us in this free participatory program modeled by the renowned Harvard Case Method Project approach to civics education, which engages participants in how to examine and respond to a situation by keying in on a specific moment in American history, putting themselves in that time and situation.

About This Program
Anne Arundel County Public School teachers Hunter Hammond (Old Mill High School), Steve Bellizzi (Annapolis High School), and Joseph Landgraf (North County High School) will moderate a discussion of the materials provided by the Harvard Case Method Project. In 2021, these teachers were nominated by LWVAAC to be trained in this nationally successful approach. Thanks to support from LWVUS, local Leagues like ours will have hosted over 90 such community programs this year alone.
Participants are asked to read the case study documents and consider certain questions in advance. LWVAAC encourages you to take advantage of this opportunity to discover the behind-the-scenes personal, social, economic, and political elements that led up to, and framed, the 1965 decision. Experience our talented public school teachers in action!
NOTE: The Harvard Case Method Project does not allow group registrations. Each participant must register and download the materials individually.
