Book Review

Μια νίκη της εκπαίδευσης

Πίνακας ζωγραφισμένος με λάδι σε καμβά, φέρει τον τον τίτλο “The Problem We All Live With” και είναι έργο του Αμερικανού ζωγράφου Νorman Rockwell. Ο καλλιτέχνης αποτυπώνει ένα από τα σημαντικότερα κοινωνικά ζητήματα της δεκαετίας του 1960, την αντίδραση της συντηρητικής κοινωνίας του αμερικανικού νότου στην λειτουργία κοινών σχολείων για μαύρους και λευκούς. 13 more words
