On Wednesday the award winning author David Greenberg will be visiting DBIS and presenting his Civil Rights Assembly to Year 9 students, augmenting a unit of work students have been undertaking in Humanities.
CIVIL RIGHTS ASSEMBLIES: Based on my award-winning novel, A Tugging String (Dutton), it tells the story of my father who was Dr. Martin Luther King’s primary attorney. He argued the case that enabled the Selma-to-Montgomery Voting Rights March in 1965 which, in turn, helped change the human rights landscape in America. In language that makes sense to kids, I connect this gripping story, which is accompanied by almost two-hundred historic photos, with current issues of human rights and bullying. A Tugging String, has received superb reviews.
In addition to A Tugging String, David has authored a number of books, covering a range of ages, Pre K and up, which he is making available for purchase and signing. If you would like to learn more about David Greenberg’s books and place an order, please follow THIS LINK, print off and complete David’s form (ignore the date on the form!) and drop your order and payment to the main campus Library this week. Please note, payment is by cash only.
We look forward to welcoming David Greenberg to DBIS for what has been described as a “riveting” programme.
