Making Curriculum Pop

The legend of 9-year-old Ron McNair ignoring the segregation of 1959 to check out library books in Lake City South Carolina now can be experienced in a new medium — animation.

StoryCorps, which began creating original animated shorts of selected stories last year, has just released its animated version of the McNair library tale, January 28, the anniversary of McNair’s death in the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion in 1986.  Details here.

Ed note 1.19.13: The Story Corps website is here and here is the video.
