Bending Toward Justice
"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." - Martin Luther King Jr.
IWitness can help you and your students reflect on the work Dr. King did and the ongoing work left for us to do.
Stories from Black liberators Paul Parks and Leon Bass offer ever-prescient insights into the world-changing impacts of Dr. King's work, and wisdom from Jewish survivor Elena Nightingale grounds us in the need to know history - so we, as educators, students and human beings - can continue to help its arc bend toward justice.
The activities below can help you go deeper with your students.
Students closely read testimony as a text and reflect on the need to help fight racism.
Students consider leadership as one of the character strengths that define the pursuit of justice.
Students connect intolerance to other forms of hate and bigotry, and develop an action plan to increase meaningful human connection on their university campus.
