Design:
Reflecting on the theme of this year’s MLK commemoration I chose to show the past, present, and future by personify birds and their link to true freedom. On the first line we reflect on the unfortunate­ past of segregation. The second line shows the present, where we can experience the mix of cultures that is taking place. On the third line there is a truly transformed tomorrow where we can transcend black and white to live in a world of beautiful colors and boundless self-expression.
