The Remember Rosa Project
The Topeka 501 School District partnered with the Mayor's Office, Topeka Metro, Brown vs Board of Education, the Chamber of Commerce, Go Topeka, and several other organizations within Topeka to create a year long project in honor of Rosa Parks. This project included Unity Walks for several schools within the 501 school district, a city wide Unity Walk, several events through out the city, and a special curriculum created about Rosa Parks and the unsung heroes of the Civil Rights Movement. The most special part of the curriculum is the Remember Rosa Mobile Museum, which is a 2014 Topeka Metro Bus, wrapped to look like the bus that Rosa Parks refused to give her seat up in. As part of the children's curriculum, this bus will tour the 501 school district and the Brown Vs Board of Education Rangers will teach the children about the civil rights movement from inside the bus.
Shenomenon is a Remember Rosa Committee Member, the digital strategy sponsor for the project, provided the Remember Rosa t-shirts, and created the online community for the project. Visit the Shenomenon built online platform for the project today at www.rememberrosa.com
This July, Shenomenon will be taking a group of ten students from Youth Entrepreneurs Topeka to show them the ins and outs of being a digital strategy agency and a Google contractor. The students will join Shenomenon for corporate training sessions and well as learn about and experience some of the work that we do in the community. They will also have the opportunity to learn about digital strategy, Google contracting, and more about the clients we work with.
