Find your voice. Tell your story. Stand up to racism.

Join Bronze Award Girl Scouts, Maya and Morgan, as they tell the story of Dorothy Counts-Scoggins, the first Black student to desegregate formerly all-white Harding High School, and their Bronze Award project, designed to honor and celebrate this Civil Rights pioneer.

During our hour with Morgan and Maya, we'll hear how the girls found their voice and stood up to racism. We'll learn about why and how they celebrated Mrs. Counts-Scoggins, in turn earning them their Bronze Award. And, leave inspired to make the world a better place, just like they did!
