Students of the Ph.D. program in Communications Media and Instructional Technologies will be featured in a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article about their Civil Rights Movement simulation project.

This educational simulation allows students to step into the history books. Through the power of Second Life, they will be immersed and experience the Montgomery Bus Boycott, the March on Washington, the Road to Selma, and the Freedom School Movement.

The students have also created a video overview of the project, available on YouTube.
