They had a Dream Too: Young Leaders of the
Civil Rights Movement is an 11th and 12th grade curriculum
project. This project was produced by the Texas Young Lawyers
Association (TYLA) and made possible by a grant from the
Texas Bar Foundation. They Had a Dream Too: Young Leaders
of the Civil Rights Movement consists of a 28 minute
film highlighting the achievement of a few of the thousands
of young people who made a difference in the 1950s and 1960s
when the struggle for civil rights reached its peak in the
United States. The film includes interviews with people who
as young adults helped changed their world.
The film also contains a component that educates students about civil rights
struggles that have occurred since the 1960s and challenges young people
to become leaders today.
Additionally, educators are provided with a curriculum that informs teachers
what TEKS and TAKS credits are covered by this project. They Had a Dream
Too: Young Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement is a project designed to
assist educators, challenge and inspire students and help build future leaders.
