My school is holding a diversity parade at the end of the month, and all the classrooms are decorating their doors for the event. I spent a couple hours today compiling a list of quotes on the subject. I could only fit 4 quotes on the poster, but found many more.
I thought I'd share them in case anyone else is doing something similar...
