Case File 1.2.0 // The Civil Rights Movement in Brooklyn

The Congress of Racial Equality (C.O.R.E.) was one of Brooklyn’s most important Civil Rights organizations. Whether they were marching 237 miles from Downtown Brooklyn to Washington, DC to join the March on Washington or helping the Bibuld family desegregate schools, they were united in their effort to protest against racism in Brooklyn and beyond. But, C.O.R.E.’s history is threatened to be lost! Agents, your mission is to uncover the stories of the people who stood up to injustice and amplify their voices by unlocking the clues to the archive that stores these highly important documents. Ages 7 - 17. Advanced registration required.
