This lesson is designed to give students the opportunity to learn about leaders in both their own community and throughout the United States. Artists often create works that make a positive impact on the community, but they can also be important in recording and honoring the stories of community leaders. Students will use The Freedom Wall—a community mural that depicts local and national leaders in the civil and social rights movements—as inspiration for designing a digital poster.
