Today I am sharing another signature simple project that I created for Black History Month. I chose Barbara Johns, a Virginia Civil Rights Activist. When this brave young Virginian took a stand against inequality Dr. Martin Luther King was still in college. On April 23, 1951, Barbara Johns, a 16 year-old high school girl in Prince Edward County, Virginia, led her classmates in a strike to protest the substandard conditions at Robert Russa Moton High School. Her suit became part of the historic 1954 U.S. Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education, in which the court ruled against "separate but equal" that ended segregation in American public schools. Prince Edward County responded to the Brown Decision by closing its public schools from 1959 to 1964, the longest period of Massive Resistance in our nation's history.This artist trading card (ATC) is being shared for two challenges over at Scraps of Color. The Black Historty ATC challenge and the weekly blog challenge. This week's blog challenge was to create a project using bling, I used glittered cardstock and some small gemstones. The biggest challenge for me was using such a small space to show case such a big idea. I’m wishing you and yours a great weekend.
