I knew that these things happened, just not on this level.

Hello,
I’m Rachel. I’m eleven years old.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful art and information with everyone. I know my story was more than six words, but it was important to use all the words.I was taught about the civil rights movement in school, but the teachers never really went into detail about the circumstances and brutality. Thanks for the wonderful exhibition so that all the youth of my generation can experience and be aware of all the things that our ancestors have gone through for us to be here today and be free.
We stand on the shoulders of giants, right?

-Rachel
