From our friend and colleague Mary McCullagh in South Florida comes this alert. I apologize for just getting this out to you now!

Any south Florida teachers? I have an amazing event at Nova Southeastern in Davie Florida on Thursday 12 March at 4 to 7 with Dr. Rip Patton. Veteran of the Nashville sit in movement and a Freedom Rider, he just returned from Selma and is looking forward to meeting South Florida teachers.

Dr. Rip Patton is truly an eyewitness to and participant in history and one of the many heroes of the Civil Rights Movement. I encourage you to see him if you can!

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Mary McCullagh at mmccullagh@columbushs.com.
