Oh Freedom

Hi, everyone!

   This week we talked about slavery in America and about the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution for the abolition of slavery, signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1865; we watched this video and listened to the spiritual "Freedom":

"We shall overcome!"
President Lyndon Johnson (1965)

Then we talked about racial discrimination and Martin Luther King, about the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that outlawed discrimination based on race, colour, religion, sex or national origin and we watched this video:

“…all men are created equal.”

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Martin Luther King (1963)

We discussed a lot about these topics and some of you want to read books and watch films about them now! I'm glad you're interested in this subject.
