*LETTER OF THE WEEK
Hi Mr. Knight,
I am in eighth grade and am working on a National History Day project. I am doing a documentary about how innovative Morrie Turner and “Wee Pals” were during the Civil Rights era. While doing research, I found your “Soul Corner” tribute to Morrie’s 45th anniversary. I think it is great and would love to use it along with a strip Morrie drew about Rainbow Power as the last image in my video — before of course the credits. If you give me permission to use it, I will include a caption stating it was drawn by you. Also you will be mentioned in the credits.
Just so you know, this project is a competition that has three levels — district, state, and nationals. How far I will get — who knows — but I’m hoping to make it all the way.
Thank you in advance,
(Cool!! I’ll keep you up-to-date on how K. does with his doc!-kk)
