Tallahassee Foot Soldiers: Change Makers, Then and Now (Year 1)




Over the course of one week, 15 middle and high school students visited people and places related to the legacy of the civil rights movement in Tallahassee.

We spent the week making art in response to our visit, while reflecting on the legacy of change makers and the impact they have on us.
