On 5 November, the King Institute was honored to host the fifth grade class from St. Paul's Episcopal School in Oakland. Our Director of Education, Andrea McEvoy Spero, conducted a tour and workshop guiding the students through an interactive exploration of the King Paper's Project primary source documents. Tenisha Armstrong, King Institute Associate Director and editor of Volume VII, spoke with the students about publishing the volumes and acting as a "detective" to uncover the past. Finally, students were greeted by our Scholar in Residence, Clarence B. Jones, who shared with the students King's vision for peace and justice. Each student completed a scavenger hunt about Dr. King from looking at some of the articles, letters and photos featured throughout the Institute. The King Institute staff was pleased to meet the many young, bright faces and felt inspired by their interest and engagement in the history of the freedom struggle.
