The sixth and final great African American mind (under the theme Black Minds Matter) my class studied was President Barack Obama. The students enjoyed learning about him since most of them had actually heard his name before. It was related to their lives, even if ever so slightly. It’s always neat to see how students are able to draw portraits of others because it shows how they see that person. Of course we’ve been talking about skin color this entire month so  you can see that nobody colored in Obama’s face purple, thank goodness. Beyond that though, there’s tons of variation, which is always neat to observe!
