Teaching Ahmad’s Market

Ahmad’s Market

Ahmad's Market is one of Demetriana's favorite neighborhood places until the market is vandalized. Afterward Mr. Ahmad bars kids from entering the store without their parents. In the end, Demetriana and others in the community come together to help Mr. Ahmad fix the market with a beautiful mural that celebrates diversity.
