Bryan Ireland Go Project Tour

Last April, as part of our US History curriculum, our class was assigned to give a tour to participants of the GO Project. This tour would have had to been an hour long and have had to focus on the history of the area surrounding Grace Church High School. Together with David Lampietti and Rio Hope-Gund, we decided to focus on the counterculture on the 60s and 70s, with particular focus on the peaceful protests that occurred during the setting. We planned out our route, and were fully prepared to execute our tour. When leading the tour, our route got blocked by a Bernie Sanders rally, which really helped to illustrate our topic. I feel like the participants learned a lot and gained a new appreciation for the city that they live in, as well as its history.
