Interview with Clarence
Clarence Branch, a junior at CAPA 6-12 talks about his rap in support of TeenBloc's Student Bill of Rights.
Putting our students in the spotlight
Next Tuesday is a big day for our TeenBloc students and A+ Schools. We’ll be hosting a community conversation about critical issues facing our public high schools. Our students have been the driving force of our research this year as they have been advocating for a Student Bill of Rights.
With help from our partner MGR Youth Empowerment, our students produced a rap and video about the Bill of Rights to educate their peers about it as they went to schools to get it ratified this past fall. Take a listen.
I wanted to know more about it, so I interviewed Clarence Branch, the talented CAPA Junior who wrote the song to tell me what he was trying to convey with his verse.
If you can, please join us on Tuesday, April 29 from 5:30 to 8 pm at the Children’s Museum in the Northside. A light dinner and childcare for the little ones will be provided. RSVP here.
