Today the First Family honored Dr. Martin Luther King with a visit to Stuart Hobson Middle School, where they took part in a mentoring project organized by Greater DC Cares’ Mentoring Matters Initiative. In this photo, the President paints pictures of fruit in the cafeteria.
“This is just an outstanding program, an example of what Martin Luther King’s birthday should be all about,” he said. “I want to thank all the mentees and mentors who are participating.”
“Dr. King obviously had a dream of justice and equality in our society, but he also had a dream of service, that you could be a drum major for service, that you could lead by giving back to our communities. And that’s what this program is all about and that’s what these participants are all about.”
