The One Million Ways Club from Chief Joseph Middle School strives to give back to the community. This is the 5th year they will help lead Bozeman's MLK Celebration and thanks to help from fellow Chief Joseph students, One Million Ways has something extra special to share during this year's celebration.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther Kings "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," students created 2 portraits of MLK. One, made of entirely home-made paint, depicts MLK in vibrant colors giving a speech. The other, in darker colors, is a portrait of MLK in the Birmingham jail.
