We started writing a week before the decision came down in Ferguson. We finished two days after protestors took to the streets in Baltimore.
Through the course of a historic year in our country's ongoing Civil Rights Movement, 30 students from Ballou Senior High School came together to add something powerful to the national conversation about race, inequality, violence, and justice.
Through their own life stories they proclaim: We Do Not Fit Your Description. We are not thugs. We are not victims. We are big sisters and sports stars, academic achievers and everyday heroes. We are a Riot of Voices, and we deserve to be heard.
So they wrote a book: Our Lives Matter. Look what just arrived. (!!!)
I could not be more excited, nor more proud of these authors. We CELEBRATE at Book Launch at Ballou HS, one week from today.
SMP Fans: You do not want to miss this book. Pre-Order available now.
