To learn more about the civil rights movement, the whole junior class at the International School of the Americas traveled to Alabama. In Alabama we heard from children marchers and their peers, as well as coworkers of Martin Luther King. This image is what I believe is the essence of reimagining borders. An African American, Mexican American, Thai, Russian, and Caucasian are conversing about what they learned earlier that day about the civil rights movement. Today we are breaking the barrier that was cracked by normal people, like me and my fellow peers, in the 1950’s and 1960’s. If we remember our past we can push through to the future. Everyday children and adults sculpted the body of the “time” we live in today, and the biggest problem we have now is that we forget we have this power as well. Collectively we can re-imagine any border.
