The Green Book Project
In a collaborative project between Greater Birmingham Arts Education Collaborative (GBAEC), Bush Hills STEAM Academy and Jefferson County Memorial Project (JCMP), sixth grade students at Bush Hills STEAM Academy have created original artwork and poetry centered around the Green Book. With the help of teaching artist Jahman Hill, students created book covers and poems while focusing on tenets of advocacy, empathy and self-advocacy.
Student work will continue to be added throughout the end of the school year, so please check back periodically for new works!
This project has been made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts, Mike & Gillian Goodrich Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
