As part of their Black History Month activities, Gotham Avenue School invited Civil Rights activist Levi Williams to virtually visit on Feb. 14. He is the uncle of fifth grade teacher Breanna Washington.

Williams, who marched alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X in the 1960s, spoke to Gotham students about his story and the various experiences he had growing up in Selma, Alabama, during the 1950s. He also spoke about meeting with Dr. King and his experience being a Freedom Fighter.

Following the presentation, fifth grade classes had the opportunity to ask Williams questions.
