Writing Challenges: Inspiration and ideas to spark your creativity every day

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

This challenge was part of a series that took its inspiration from the life, works and values of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose legacy is a lens through which we ask participants to examine current events, issues and personal experiences. This series aims to help participants initiate conversations, articulate their views, raise awareness and instigate change around social inequities. It was developed in partnership with the 2016 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee at Dartmouth College.
