Mr. Enwia from Chicago IL is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Thomas Jefferson. Why were Dr. King and others fighting for this almost 200 yrs. later.

I am an eighth grade teacher in a Chicago Public School, with a 96% low income.

We are a culturally mixed school with students representing about 23 different languages, cultures, and ethnicities. My students face many challenges including gang violence, poverty and many domestic issues, and yet they come to school eager and ready to learn.

My Project

We are learning about the injustices suffered by African Americans which lead to the Civil Rights movement, specifically the events leading to the march on Selma. We will compare this to other events happening today in places like Ferguson, and connect it all to the challenges faced by the students themselves in their own community.

I hope that my students will be able to experience the movie Selma and make connections of the Civil Rights movement to their own lives.

I hope it encourages them to never give up and always fight for what they believe is right.
