Students Learn to be Brave

Last updated on August 13, 2020

Teaching children history is important, and when the teacher is local and a part of that history, it helps bring that history to life. Local author Dr. Lavon Bracy recently met with young residents attending the city’s small group summer camps to discuss her newest children’s book, A Brave Little Cookie, written for elementary school children to introduce them to the civil rights movement and sacrifices made to make the world a better place. 

Dr. Bracy introduced City of Orlando summer campers to the difficulties and struggles of the civil rights era, sharing her own story of how she integrated the Alachua County, Florida school system, reminding students that one person truly can make a difference.
