Room 210 Civil Rights was designed to help students in Randy Turner's eighth grade communication arts at East Middle School in Joplin, MO, with their third quarter research project on the American civil rights movement. The site contains news and articles on civil rights. Though Mr. Turner no longer teaches in the Joplin School District, this site will remain online and continue to be updated to serve those who are researching the civil rights movement.
