Honoring Trayvon Martin
A story from Day One of Black Lives Matter Week of Action in Schools.
In observance of what would have been Trayvon Martin's 23rd birthday, the Inspired Teaching Demonstration School community wore hooded sweatshirts to school today — a student-initiated proposal. One eighth grade student shared, “It means a whole lot that our school is honoring black lives because I like to fight for justice.”
Eighth-grade students, also composed and presented an age-appropriate lesson to 1st graders on the importance of not judging people by what they look like or are wearing.
