Members of Deer Park High School’s Black Student Union recently decorated a display case to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Traditionally, MLK Day is recognized as a day of service, so the students were eager to organize a service project that would impact their Deer Park High School community.
The display case includes a collaborative mural and selected quotes from Dr. King, including “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: Only love can do that.”
“Our students are hopeful that with small acts such as this, they can make the world a better place,” teacher Aleisha Forbes said.
