Black and Latino high school students in the south Bronx are getting a crash course in political activism. The students of South Bronx Community Charter High School organized their own street protest against police brutality in partnership with Black Lives Matter. The march was held on Saturday, December 2nd. David Zha has more.
Since 2013, the Black Lives Matter movement has placed a spotlight on the volatile relationship between law enforcement and African-Americans across the country. Its nationwide protests have pushed race relations to the top of national conversation, including on the campaign trail. And now, the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn has organized the first teach-in around Black Lives Matter issues.
