Howland Middle School marks nonviolence week with visit from civil rights icon

Minnijean Brown-Trickey visits Howland Middle School

Howland Middle School welcomed Minnijean Brown-Trickey, a member of the Little Rock Nine, on Monday, October 8.

Minnijean was one of the first African-American students to participate in the court ordered desegregation of public schools in 1957 after the Brown v. Board Supreme Court decision.  While addressing the district’s eighth graders she spoke about her experience as well as the importance of not being a silent witness, nonviolence, social change, leadership and voting. 

To prepare for her visit, Howland Middle School students have been learning about the six principles of nonviolence in Tiger Pride classes. Seventh and eighth grade students have been learning about the civil rights movement and the importance of nonviolence in daily activities and interactions with peers.  Many middle school students and clubs also participated in the 8th Annual Nonviolence Parade and Rally in Youngstown on October 7.
