Indivisible: Kristine Hatanaka's high school art class

I am proud to post square number 59, a great work created by Elisa, a student in Kristine Hatanaka's art class from Culver City High School Academy of Visual and Performing Arts:

 Pencil and collage on paper, 2017.

I am showing this image larger than usual because I want you to read the quotes from the AP article (linked here to the Huffington post articles) that Elisa used in her work: "5-Year Old Boy, Jax Gets Same Haircut As His Friend so You Can't Tell Them Apart"..."The story of two 5-year old boys from Kentucky, one white and one black, is teaching people about racial harmony."  The children initially were playing a trick on their teacher, one getting the same haircut as the other, hoping the teacher couldn't tell them apart.  A great story!

Please keep sending your squares to the Indivisible Project
