My hexagon shows people from different races coming together to stop racism. My picture also shows a positive example of racism because the people of different races are holding hands. Racism is most prevalent in the United States, Germany, South America and Africa. Anybody can be affected by this because one race can be racist to another. There are also many organizations like the American Arab discrimination committee and the American institute of diversity that are trying to stop this problem. Some progress that has been done is that Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. stood up for what they believed in and now we no longer have separate  things and people of different races can sit together without being judged. I think that racism is a big issue and thats why i chose the topic of racism and expressed it through my hexagon.

I loved the dots around the outside and you really captured the topic of racism.

    I teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one day just might change the world.

    I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
