Telling Our Stories, Testimonial Video and Resource Area : This station has three components. First, there are accounts written by prior students of their personal experiences with prejudice and discrimination. Current visitors can write down their experiences and add them to the collection binder. They will see how other kids feel and deal with these situations, as well as add their own thoughts. Secondly, there is a large monitor that shows video clips of children telling true stories of prejudice and discrimination. Here, again, students will observe the experiences of peers. Finally, there is an area containing resources, bookshelves and seating. It is a comfortable place for reading and expression where students can explore and respond to the resources and thoughts of the museum.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
