A Simple Gesture spent a lovely Saturday at the High Point Museum! Check out the amazing collection of miniatures, the quilting exhibition, the historic buildings on the property, the Thomas Built school bus (kids' favorite!), and of course, the Furniture Heritage exhibit. The museum is free and has lots of fun activities coming up, from writing with quill pens (today from 10 am to 4:30 pm) to blacksmith demonstrations every Saturday to ice cream making (July 16th, noon to 2 pm).
As families were enjoying the fun, lots signed up to be green bag food donors and support our local pantries. Thank you, High Point Musuem, for hosting us, and thank you, families, for signing up!

The momentous act of courage that brought four young men from A&T University to sit at the "Whites Only" dining counter at the downtown Woolworths in Greensboro, NC in 1960 started a movement that would spread throughout the country and become a catalyst in the Civil Rights movement. College students, who took their lessons seriously and saw, in Mahatma Ghandi’s non-violent protests that brought India its independence from colonial powers and the lessons of so many who stood up and spoke out for the rights of African Americans, the power of civil disobedience to amplify their voices, challenge power dynamics and press for needed reforms. This play is a tribute to those young people and their accomplishments, and it is an appropriate reminder to our own students that education and applied research can and does change the world.
