A group of freshman students from Roosevelt High School have created a museum-quality traveling exhibit and publication featuring the stories of sixteen local individuals who have taken part in historic social justice movements. The Freedom Fighters Exhibit will be on display on Tuesday, February 19 and Wednesday, February 20, in the Franz Hall foyer, and is free and open to faculty, staff, students, and the public.
Fourteen University of Portland students in Rich Christen’s social studies methods course assisted ninety Roosevelt students in a freshman humanities course as they interviewed local community leaders who have taken a stand for social justice, working to advance the civil rights of various races, cultures, and religions. The resulting exhibit has been traveling alongside a national Frederick Douglass exhibit throughout Portland and Multnomah County during the month of February 2013.
