dc.description.abstract The United States of America has had many great heroes that have inspired Americans to change for the better. One of these great leaders is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. King forced Americans to think about the issue of race relations in the United States. Through his leadership and example, King was able to inspire many people to peacefully protest to change some of the corrupt laws in our country. During a time when many wanted to resort to violence, King stayed firm in his belief of love can conquer all. Following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, King was able to change some of the segregation laws without violence. He was honored for his work by receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. A few years later he lost his life, yet he will not be forgotten by Americans for generations to come. In order to help fulfill his dream of one day having children of all colors and races playing together, I decided to create a quilt of his life. I have used the quilt and plan to continue to use the quilt to teach my students about the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. Hopefully by educating others, prejudice may completely disappear from the United States.
