1960 - 1961

The Friendship 9 has a huge heart for the new generation growing up in this post Civil Rights era. They want to share their story with younger people to both encourage practicing civic duties as well as let them know how things use to be.
Their message: never forget where we all came from, and don’t be afraid to press on toward a better future by doing what is right. They tend to speak at a lot of schools, teaching kids of all ages what it means to stand up for something in a responsible way.
