I like how the doodle is colorful and cheerful, depicting the words “I have a dream that … your little children will not be judged by the color of their skin” and “We shall overcome someday.” These words mention specifically the children of our future. To help keep Dr. King’s dream of justice and equality alive we must all pay more attention on forgiving the past and embracing the future.
Today’s “Google Doodle” was created by the Harlem-born artist and author Faith Ringgold , a professor emeritus at UCSD and “story quilter” whose first book, “Tar Beach,” received the Coretta Scott King Award for Illustration.
Ringgold’s children’s books include “My Dream of Martin Luther King,” and her Doodle illustrates several young faces.
