“TO WHOM IT SHOULD CONCERN:”


The New York Times’ Race/Related series published an interestingly thought-provoking article this week to focus and highlight a select group of college-bound high school students whose backgrounds and aspirations are as diverse as each individual.  Each featured student demonstrates the power of both resilience and determination in influencing life trajectory and all presented through spoken word and poetry.  Perspectives shared by these young people were featured excerpts from a project, Handwritten, and performed at the Bronx Library Center in April.

Read their stories by following the link below. We all have a unique story that, upon sharing, may unlock doors for someone by hearing yours. Life is but a series of doors and stories provide keys to unlock many of them.
