March Mayhem: School Segregation and Desegregation Through Basketball
Guest: $5 | IHS Member: FREE
In Indiana, basketball is more than just a game. Hoosiers have a rich history with this sport which has had cultural impacts!
In 1955 Crispus Attucks High School was the first all-black team to win a state championship in the nation. Join the IHS education team as we explore the impacts of one school and one team on segregation in Indiana. Participants will watch a clip with filmmaker Ted Green and other notable Hoosiers, create timelines, analyze historical documents, and even create their own newspaper in this hands-on and interactive workshop designed for homeschool families.
Stay after the program to enjoy the Indiana Experience as well as a screening of the documentary Attucks: A School that Opened a City at 1:30 p.m.
Registration includes workshop and materials, admission to the Indiana History Center including the “Chuck Taylor All-Star” exhibit, the “Going Pro” exhibit, and parking.
