Worth reading

@Todayin1963 is “live-tweeting” the bombing at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala. Four girls were killed, many more injured, and shock waves spread across the nation.

Whether or not you’re a Twitter user, the tweets are a powerful window into history and absolutely worth a read. @Todayin1963 is an account run by NPR Code Switch. It’s been doing a beautiful job looking at the summer of 1963 and the Civil Rights Movement.

For more about Birmingham 50 years later, you can read this NPR piece: “50 Years Later, Birmingham is still Subtly Divided.”

I’ve always been been addicted to history. So when I had the opportunity to spend some time at a local school celebrating National History Day, I was ecstatic. The attention to detail by these students was phenomenal and those that I spoke with were passionate about their topics. Plus, it was such a confidence builder.
After the article came out Thursday, I found out thirty-two students moved on to the regional competition at the end of the month. That’s incredibly exciting and I look forward to seeing what happens next.
