“We must learn to live together as brothers and sisters, or we will perish together as fools.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The first part of learning to live together is learning ABOUT those we live with.
Since its inception in 1975, the Great Plains Black History Museum has exemplified this idea.
Diversity. Equity. Inclusion. Not simply words, but people. Lives. Experiences.
These stories and these individuals have not only shaped who we are, but if we stand still long enough to let in their legacy, we will feel them show us the way forward.
ADL-CRC partnered with several schools to further explore destinations and landmarks by incorporating supplemental educational material and students’ voices.
Benson High School students partnered with UNO Human Geography students to research and create these background materials and presentations.
