Log on for a free, and virtual, screening of "Mighty Times: The Children's March." Documenting the 1963 Children's Crusade, it tells the story of school-aged girls and boys who took a stand for social justice in the face of attack dogs, fire hoses, and other modes of oppression. A major turning point in the Civil Rights movement, the demonstrations compelled the passage of the Civil Rights Act, and have significance in today's fight for equality.
