Civil Rights History Through A “Glass” Filter

Jennifer Glass recounts the 2017 Georgia Tech Civil Rights Tour

As part of Georgia Tech’s celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and students trekked to Washington, D.C., to tour civil rights sites in the nation’s capital. School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Assistant Professor Jennifer Glass was among the Yellow Jackets who traveled overnight on a bus from Atlanta to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 12, 2017.  For two days, the Georgia Tech tourists visited museums and memorials on the National Mall.

Glass shared her experiences to her Twitter followers, and now she has turned her tweets into a compelling story. Through Glass’s eyes, you can vicariously experience the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the newest museum on the National Mall. Read her story in Storify.
