After engaging the Americans Who Tell the Truth portraits for a semester, middle school students at Reeds Brook Middle School in Hampden, Maine worked on projects to respond creatively to the portraits, stories, and history they had studied. Some responded with visual arts, others with theater skits, and some used writing to express what they had learned and felt. Nick Parker turned to music. Listen to the song he composed for Samantha Smith.
