The King Center (10/23/08)

Today the family packed our things and headed to Atlanta, Georgia. For our first organized field trip, we visited the The King Center. The girls learned a lot about the civil rights movement and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Trinity- I did not know that not too long ago black people and white people were segregated. I also learned that Dr. Martin Luther King used some things he learned from Gandhi in India to help him in his fight for equal rights using non-violence.
Kennedy- I learned that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was married, had four kids, and used to bring his wife carnations. Dr. King was brave and died so I can live the way I do now.
This was an awesome experience to share with my entire family.
