Today marks the 51st anniversary of the March on Washington. Last year, one of my students greeted me with this wonderful illustration after we we read about it in class. This piece of work is one more reason that I love what I do, because young kids do understand this and are truly interested.
The book to the right is by one of my all time FAVORITE authors, Kadir Nelson. Taking a picture walk through his books is an inspirational journey! His ability to capture pieces of history is a gift and one that I love sharing with my students.
