In 2014 I was asked to create a collage to commemorate the birthday and life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for Google.com. It was an honor to share in the world-wide celebration of a great man who brought more light and love into our world.
I chose to illustrate his successful march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge because it captured the strength of spirit and leadership of the man. It also acknowledges those who marched and put their lives on the line with him. The linked arms and rhythm of the hands hopefully convey a message of collaboration, strength, unity and determined action. This movement of hearts and minds led to great changes in America and around the world. As we face the complex social and racial challenges of today, we should look to this legacy for encouragement, strength, strategy and inspiration.
