In honor of those who died in the civil-rights movement, the Southern Poverty Law Center has prepared a chronicle of the movement for secondary school students.
The 104-page publication, Free At Last: A History of the Civil Rights Movement and Those Who Died in the Struggle, contains brief biographies of the 40 people whose names are engraved on a recently dedicated memorial in Montgomery, Ala.
Collaborations between schools and "science-rich'' universities, museums, and businesses seem to have taken hold in a big way, according to a report by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
However, participation is often voluntary, and some alliances result in activities that are at the fringes of basic science programs.
The report suggests ways to avoid pitfalls and enhance the chances of success. Copies of the report are available, at $10 apiece, from: Network Publications, P.O. Box 1830, Santa Cruz, CA 95061; (800) 321-4407.
