John Brown: The Triumphant Failure (8th Grade Cornerstone)
Protest and Patriotism Cornerstones Showcase
Program Description: Make the National Museum of American History your stage for your Protest and Patriotism Cornerstones Showcase. Your students will have the opportunity to perform their original narratives in front of visitors on one of the museum’s stages for an authentic learning experience. While visiting NMAH, students and their guests will also be able to experience theatrical performances that will immerse them in the tactics of the sit-in movement by the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee and enable them to evaluate John Brown’s legacy in the aftermath of his raid on Harper’s Ferry. The Cornerstones program is open to 80 students and two guests each. All participants will be invited to a light reception and student performers will receive a commemorative token. We look forward to seeing you in May.
