Campbellsville Elementary School third-graders recently learned about equality.
Students in Marcia Sharp’s class discussed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s work in the civil rights movement for equality.
Sharp discussed that King believed everyone is equal, no matter the color of their skin.
After the lesson, students traced their hand and then decorated it.
Sharp used the hands to decorate her classroom door.
The door also includes one of King’s most famous quotes, “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
