Participants wrote about the debate and conversation of people “taking a knee” during the National Anthem to bring awareness to the unjust treatment of minorities and others across the United States. In the essays, students discussed ways to bring awareness to the mistreatment of minorities and other social injustices. In the spirit of Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech, students wrote about how to bring unity among all people.
