STUDENTS VISUALIZE DR. KING'S POWERFUL WORDS AND LEGACY

Posted January 12 at 3:37pm

“Dream” is perhaps the word most associated with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., but his message of non-violence and philosophical principles centered around many other powerful words.

 

In honor of Dr. King’ birthday celebration on Monday, Jan. 15, eighth grade students in Nicole Saunders ceramics class sculpted and painted words representing Dr. King’s 6 Principles and 6 Steps of Nonviolence.

 

Before attempting to express Dr. King’s teachings in a visual way, each student, or team of students, focused on one single principle to arrive at a single powerful word that embodies its meaning.
