Students contemplate what has been done in support of civil rights...through art.

The mural was designed by four students who were in eighth grade two years ago: Desiree Ernst, Alex Gonzalez, Tim Fish and Mya Carter.

The mural features six iconic figures from the past and the present 

From the annals of the Civil Rights Movement, there are images of Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks and Cesar Chavez.

From the struggle to overcome apartheid in South Africa, there is Nelson Mandela.

From the tragedy of the Holocaust, there is Anne Frank.

And from today’s effort to educate women in the Muslim world, there is Malala Yousafzai, the 17-year-old Pakistani who last year became the youngest recipient ever of the Nobel Peace Prize.

In addition to artistic renderings of these famous individuals, the mural features a quote from Parks: “I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free … so other people would also be free.”
