In honor of Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, middle school students at Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy studied the famous quote from Dr. King’s speech to the NAACP. The quote centered on Dr. King’s belief that all Americans had a “moral obligation to press on (with the fight for equality)…because of our love for America and…the democratic way of life.” The students of Ilana Zadok, middle school teacher at Hillel, designed footprints symbolizing the need to “keep moving” forward with Dr. King’s vision. Each footprint holds a pledge on how each student will individually work on continuing to keep Dr. King’s vision alive.
