School Without Walls students learn about Civil Rights

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Imagine getting to sit on the bus almost identical to the one Rosa Parks sat on when she refused to give up her seat in Birmingham Alabama, back in 1955 during the Civil Rights Era. 
Students from the School Without Walls were able to do just that. They were able to board a vintage bus and participate in a digital civil rights class while on board. 
"I thought it was also very inspiring. It kinda made me tear up, everything she went through, just for me to have a education and I respect her a lot and I look up to her a lot," says Ida Campbell, School Without Walls 12th Grader.
The Civil Rights Museum on Wheels was stationed at the School Without Walls for the entire day to give all students and staff members to take a tour.
