Middle School Students Attend Upstander Institute
Students were also engaged in learning about history and the importance of human rights through history from Sheila Arnold who shared the story of "Ol Bess" (a slave owned by Mr. Southall, owner of the Raleigh Tavern. She has a husband and four children and shares some of the things happening in the colony in 1774 including the dissolution of the House of Burgesses, the beginning talks of revolution and the tragedies that occurred in Boston Harbor. She also shares about her life and the ways she has learned to survive as a slave). Then shared her experience and knowledge of history.
