Sharing Diversity Through Photography

Photographs are an excellent medium for sharing the important message of respecting and understanding diversity in our society.  Yesterday Ms. Rogers and I had the opportunity to collaborate with the Edgar B. Davis K-8 school in Brockton, greeted by their very enthusiastic Principal, Diane Campbell, along with her eager staff and students.

The project’s theme “We All Smile in the Same Language” was taken from a message our own MSMS Principal, Richard Connors, provided in his back-to-school message in August.  It was our goal for the photographs is to show a sense of human connectedness through a simple smile.
