Pictures of injustice by Ms. Edwards’ students at The School for Creative Studies

This exhibition, on view at the Durham County Library, illustrates students’ ideas about injustice. Seventh graders in Ms. Edwards’ class at The School for Creative Studies focused on their own lives in this social studies lesson. With pictures and words students communicate their struggles with getting in trouble, feeling left out, being bored with school assignments, dealing with older or younger siblings, living far from one’s homeland or facing bullies. Ms. Edwards’s students worked with Duke undergraduate students in Literacy Through Photography, a class at the Center for Documentary Studies taught by Katie Hyde.
