Electronic Field Trips

Two 50 minute broadcasts, one for middle school students and one for high school students were broadcast on the Internet on May 19, 2004. The archived field trips include a special tour of the Separate Is Not Equal: Brown v. Board of Education exhibition by curators Alonzo Smith and Harry Rubenstein, film footage from the exhibition, and a live Q&A session between the Brown v. Board curators, NMAH Curator of African American History, Fath Ruffins, and school children from around the country. Dr. Lee Thorton, professor of journalism at the University of Maryland, moderated the two sessions.
