So, this is going to be a little different than what we have done before. Slavery is not just an issue in the Bible, sadly it spilled into our country for far too many years (any number greater than 0 would apply, but it was much more than that). However, as terrible as slavery was and is, there are many incredible heroes around the world that rose up against slavery and racial injustice. I’m thinking about people like William Wilberforce, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr. the list goes on and on. Do some research and find out some interesting things about one or a few of these people. Want to really impress your parents? Create an interactive presentation. Or, if you are all schooled out, and you are on the older end of the elementary age group, there is an incredible movie about the life of William Wilberforce called Amazing Grace. It’s rated PG, so parents you may want to do a little research first, but it is a tremendous look at someone who fought against slavery.
