STUDENT JOURNAL

Picture this, it’s 100 degrees outside and you and your daughter are slaves making bricks. You’re using these bricks to make slave cabin to house you and your child. In those very bricks while putting then together your hand-print is engraved. One hundred plus years later those same prints not only touch the bricks but touch the hearts and lives of many. One of those lives are myself. When I looked at the hand-prints, it was more than just slavery that teachers teach out of a book; it became reality. It was proof that many years ago a slave built this very cabin and had to live in it. ~Mercedes

There were a lot things that I learned today that I never thought I would ever get to know. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream that we are still trying to make come true. It’s our job to that dream and make it a reality but it takes hard work and dedication. Martin Luther King worked hard and was dedicated to making this generation free.~Charise Flowers

Today was the Movement Within the Family. We have been exploring different movements that can lead people to a great future. We visited Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College. While visiting Spelman College, we learned how great of a college it was and it’s high standards for admissions. We also went to the World of Coca-Cola and learned how it’s a great business because it grows with time and touches people around the world. Last but not least, we met the “GEM Girls” which is another girl society that’s also a movement of young girls becoming women.~Dasha Washington
