  • Bullitt Lick Middle to host Run for Freedom on May 12

     Eighth graders have taken on the role of activists and organized a Run For Freedom to bring attention that modern day slavery still exists.

    “This unit is all about oppression,” she said. “We begin by reading about basic human rights and then look at a time in our history when those rights were being denied and people did something about it: the Civil Rights Movement.”
