Celebrate human diversity! Children think about the freedoms they enjoy, and remember the work of civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
What does the word freedom mean to you? Is it the feeling you get when you ride your skateboard down a big hill? Does it mean that you could grow up to be anything you want to be? Might it mean being able to vote? Freedom means many different things to different people. Talk with your friends and family about what freedom means to them.
Many people in the past, and even today, face discrimination and are treated unfairly. They may not have free choice about where to live, what jobs to take, or the right to vote for their leaders. When your parents and grandparents were younger, African Americans were seeking the same freedoms that the rest of people in the United States were enjoying. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was one of the leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. After many years of struggle, laws and attitudes began to change. Find out more about this movement and other efforts around the world to win human rights.
