Student Comic Book: SWCS’s Hunt For History

In Spring 2015, Know Your City partnered with SW Charter School to offer a comics workshop that supported their term-long study of the history of civil rights movement and local African American history. During the course of several weeks teachers Lisa Colombo and Karinsa Kelly led the students in discussions and readings covering topics including exclusion laws, the Vanport flood, school segregation and integration. Students also took field trips around Portland and participated in history-themed scavenger hunts.
