Wings of Justice

Warring & Clinton 4th and 5th Grades
Students at Clinton and Warring were visited by Vassar College students for Black History Month. Each student was given the book “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave written by Himself.” The class learned about Frederick Douglass’ life and the role he played in history and discussed “what does it mean to be Black?”. Each student then designed at least two large watercolor feathers for a collaborative “Wings of Justice” artwork where they illustrated or wrote responses to the following:
“Who am I?” “What makes me unique?” “Who will I be as I get older?”
