Youth EB Picks: Racial Equity from Generation Justice

July 8, 2013 in GPRX Blog by Kristopher Buttafoco

This piece is very powerful. I enjoyed "Racial Equity" for its diction and very direct message. Luna's perspective from inside of private school gives a very interesting perspective of modern racial issues. Her pacing added to the overall youthful passion for this topic conveyed in her speech. The segment of her speech in which she retells the dialogue between her and her teacher about the authors of the humanities text books really hit a nerve with me,having been a dialogue I have had before. I really enjoyed this piece and hope to hear more powerful words from my generation.
