HAMMOND – Students at Southeastern Louisiana University Lab School received an orientation to the "Separate but Equal" period of U.S. history on Wednesday (Oct. 10) by Southeastern Professor of Education Celina V. Echols. After students heard music and viewed images of a timeline covering the periods of slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow laws and the Civil Rights era, they returned to their classrooms for a period of reflection where they drew and wrote on their impressions. The event was presented as a foundation for an upcoming visit to the school by the Plessy and Ferguson Foundation for Education and Reconciliation.
