Ivy learned a bit about Martin Luther King Jr in school last week. Here's what she told me about him:
He lived a long time ago when dark people and light people couldn't drink at the same water fountain. Now dark people can live wherever they want and we can all be friends.
"Like Tyler can be my friend because of him."
Tyler is a black girl in her class. I was impressed that she made this real-life connection to something they talked about in school. And she was so happy that she can be friends with whomever she wants.
