A Lesson in History

Sean King, a second grader from Colorado Springs, was reprimanded by his elementary school principal in May for showing up to school with dark make-up on his face to resemble Martin Luther King Jr. for a school project. The NAACP would stand with the principal's decision to tell the boy to wash the make-up off.
