McComb, Mississippi

Beginning in 2006, Teaching for Change staff worked with staff, students, and community members in McComb to infuse Civil Rights Movement history into the curriculum. This included a thorough revision of the 8th grade U.S. history course, the creation of a McComb Legacies project, and the first time entry of McComb students in the Mississippi History Day competition. The McComb students won the competition three years a row at the state level and traveled to DC to compete nationally and share their work with veterans, museums, and other students.
