We salute the students involved in the Sit-Ins of the 60’s to tell their stories of pain and determination. These great warriors included ABC students Congressman John Lewis and Rev. Dr. C. T. Vivian, two Presidential Medal of Honor Awardees, and many others who fought valiantly for the cause of social justice.Â
We encourage our students to continue lighting the flame in the world. Â Register to volunteer atÂ vanderbi.lt/serviceday2020
