How can art be a form of protest?

Common Core takes advantage of every opportunity to build students’ cultural literacy. That is why the cover of each book we publish is illustrated with an important work of painting, sculpture, or architecture. We select images that we know students will love to look at again and again. These works relate to ideas taken up in the book. The Berlin Wall, constructed in 1961, is the most familiar image of the Cold War. For nearly 20 years it divided the free world from the Communist block, in many cases separating families. Approximately one thousand people died trying to get to freedom on the other side. Citizens on the free side protested the wall, in part, by covering it with graffiti. Meanwhile, on the Communist side, where people were not allowed freedom of expression, the wall remained blank.
