Celebrating Dr. King's Legacy with a Hometown Hero!

Juanita Adams dedicated her life's work to the ideals of securing human rights and dignity through the use of non-violence, the same ideals as those espoused by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Inspired by a combination of the March on Washington and her own lived experiences, Juanita worked to end segregation and unfair housing practices in the city of Milwaukee. Discover the Civil Rights Movement through the words and deeds of this hometown hero with resources designed for the secondary classroom.

Hands-On History brings the very best of museum education to your classroom! With topics covering 14,000 years of human history in Wisconsin, there's sure to be a program that will enhance your studies and engage your students!

" My students and I loved it! They were very interested in the objects and the stories behind them because it tied in perfectly with our Wisconsin history unit." - 4th Grade Teacher

" I liked the program a lot. The most I liked about it was the objects that they passed around because I actually got to feel and touch these objects." 4th Grade Student
