Join The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza for a virtual workshop about civil rights featuring a conversation with civil rights activist Ernest McMillan and primary source-based activities for the classroom. Mr. McMillan will share his involvement with the Student Nonviolence Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in Dallas during the Civil Rights Movement. Educators will then build civil rights-themed online collections of Museum objects to use in their classrooms and create a visual history lesson using their personalized set of resources. This professional development workshop is an incredible opportunity for educators to experience living history and see how to incorporate relevant and impactful resources in your classroom.

About Ernest McMillan: An African American human rights advocate, Ernest McMillan was attending Morehouse College in Atlanta when the assassination of President John F. Kennedy happened in 1963. While in Georgia, he met Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and became active with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). As an emerging leader, McMillan later co-founded the Dallas chapter of SNCC and continued working to desegregate the community and promote racial equality.
