The article focuses on a lesson plan on communicating messages, based on the Emancipation Proclamation, a decree by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln abolishing slavery in the U.S. The author's belief that a message can be a motivating or aggravating factor was reinforced when her son's school took no action against racial discrimination. An overview of the lesson plan is provided.
