Title: Have Happiness
What do you want others to know about your artwork? Our work is about different characteristics a person should have while working together. We want people to know what’s on the inside not the outside.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. There is perhaps no greater speech and no greater advocate for equality in all of American history. As a leader of courageous soldiers of justice his dream, his legacy of racial and social justice is still very much a part of our lives today. Ranging from international peace activists to communities battling poverty in America, people from all walks of life respond to Dr. King’s timeless message and call for a better world through nonviolence. To commemorate Dr. King’s life and legacy, students will participate in an art project at Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site. The project will provide opportunities for students to learn about and creatively interpret Dr. King’s contributions to civil rights and the ongoing struggle for equality.
