Cannon Cultures is excited to partner with the Levine Museum of the New South to bring the Courage Exhibit to the campus of Cannon School. Courage: The Carolina Story That Changed America is featured in our First Look Gallery. This twenty-two panel exhibit tells the powerful grassroots story of the Reverand J. DeLaine, his wife, three children, and the other brave citizens of Clarendon County, South Carolina, who brought about the first lawsuit in America challenging racial segregation in public school. This case would later be referred to as Brown vs. Board of Education.
During the month of February, students, faculty, and parents will have several opportunities to learn more about the individual contributions of citizens in the face of adversity. This story of Courage in America is particularly powerful in the school setting because it also brings light to the difference young people can make as advocates of change. The exhibit will be on campus beginning February 5 and run through March 5.
