Peace Love Hope

This morning I was lucky to witness students from Brooklyn’s PS261 Magnet School for Integrating the Arts on their March on Brooklyn Borough Hall in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  They were carrying signs that read Peace and Hope and I Have a Dream and some students were chanting “Peace, Love, Hope”.  The cellphone photos below capture just a bit of the inspiring spirit these young people brought to Brooklyn today.

    Hi Mr. Davidson,
    BHS and the Brooklyn Navy Yard are collecting oral histories about the Navy Yard, including when Seatrain was there. Contact us here at the BHS Oral History Program if you would be interested in being interviewed for this project.
    Thank you,
