|Panel from Seashore Trolley Museum's "A Seat for Everyone" Bus Exhibit|
Perhaps more than any other day, I feel good about promoting civil rights education, cross-cultural tolerance, and an awareness of difficult histories. Did you know that one of Maine's museums, Seashore Trolley Museum, curates a vintage 1964 bus that operated in Washington, D.C. when Martin Luther King, Jr. was giving his "I Have a Dream" speech in Washington and when the Civil Rights Act was signed? King Middle School students' work on Civil Rights has helped the museum convert the bus into a mobile bus exhibit. If you would like to know more, check out educational offerings at Seashore Trolley Museum and watch this short, narrated slideshow "A Seat for Everyone."
