Pat McKissack and Arlene Zarembka introduced themselves to the students today over videoconference. Both authors gave a little of their respective backgrounds and then discussed how they came to co-author To Establish Justice, and spoke the issues within the book.  Pat and Arlene talked about the Supreme Court and its judges and some of their rulings (like ‘separate but equal’). During part of the program, Pat read statements and asked the students to tell her if the statement was a fact, or an opinion.  It will be interesting to hear about the project the students will be assigned…
