Description

A large cardboard box used as an exhibit display reads, in capitalized, black hand-lettering, "These dramatic paintings and statements of the Cardozo area of Washington, D.C., are the result of a courageous invitation from their teachers to "tell it like it is." Immediate action by theInnovation team of the Model Schools, encouraged by Dr. Robert Coles of Harvard University, stimulated the teachers to try this approach as a constructive way to relieve children's tensions following the events surrounding the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."
