Civil Rights Act impacts youth 50 years later

As part of African American History Month, students here participated in an essay contest on what the Civil Rights Act of 1964 means to them, and how their life would be affected if the Act had not been passed. Twelve-year olds Danielle Nelson and Keiani Mabe were named the winners of a recentthis contest. In recognition, each essay was read by its author during the AAHM closing ceremony at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Feb. 25, 2014. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Staff Sgt. Alyssa C. Wallace)
