Students Create Iconic Lego Display of MLK

Image of Martin Luther King made of Legos by kids

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has been immortalized in statues and paintings, writings and songs. This week, as part of Milton Hershey School’s MLK Day observance, Elementary Division students at Memorial Hall used a unique art form to pay tribute to the Civil Rights leader.


Piece by piece, student by student, they added to the image, with each child placing two plastic Legos.

This simple act of art demonstrated Dr. King’s dream, that one day little children of all races would be holding hands ? or laying Legos, together.
