Description: This mosaic depicts Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., addressing a large audience at the Freedom Rally in Los Angeles in 1963.
Inspiration: I was inspired to learn more about MLK and the social justice movement, so I created this mosaic while listening to Dr. King’s sermons. As I listened and created, I often felt like a member of the audience at the rally. Click here to view my presentation of this LEGO mosaic at the 2021 Eastern Michigan University MLK Celebration.
