MLK

America today. Look at the people, events and issues we are facing now. Draw on inspiration from the life, works and values of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to write, compare, suggest a path forward. Or just rant.

Belief


Martin Luther King Jr. was driven by his beliefs: His religious faith, his belief in the worth of each individual person and his belief in the desperate need for Black people to be treated with equality and respect and given the opportunities they deserved. He also believed in non-violence; he believed that by protesting with strength, persistence and non-violence, his message could not be ignored. As you look at yourself, what internal belief(s) do you have that you think define(s) who you are, what you do and how you conduct yourself? How do you apply that belief in actions and how might you use it to shape your world in the future? #pastchallenge #mlk

Police

Have you ever been in a car that was pulled over by police? What happened? Do you think your appearance--or that of the car or people you were with--affected how you were treated? In what way(s)? Be specific. Use details. If your piece involves other real people, please use pseudonyms. #pastchallenge #mlk

Furious

What's happening in America -- or the world -- right now that makes you furious? What about the situation doesn't sit right with you? Explain using words, images and/or sounds. Supplement: Is there anything you can do, big or small, to right the wrong? What will the world look like if you're successful? #pastchallenge #mlk
