CC Reads program -- 7 p.m., April 2
Active ImageThe first northern challenge of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision took place nearby in Hillsboro 65 years ago.

A small group of African-American mothers refused to send their children to the dilapidated Lincoln School and "marched" with their children to the white Webster School every day for two years.

Kati Herrington Burwinkel (right) will present the documentary short "The Lincoln School Story: How 18 African American Mothers Changed History" at 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 2 at the library. The program is being held in conjunction with Clinton County Reads 2019, and funding was made possible by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

A few of the marchers also will be at the program and discuss their fight in 1954 and where we stand today. The program is free and open to the public.

Clinton County Reads 2019 features programs and discussions related to the book "Educated: A Memoir" by Tara Westover.
