VOICES THAT MATTER: Creative Expressions class takes action...



During Ms. Matsui's 7th period, her Creative Expression class engages in relevant and meaningful communities issues.  One of the issues that the 6th grade boys tackled was the #blacklivesmatter movement and its relevance to the Westmont community of South Los Angeles.  In honor of the killing of unarmed Anthony Weber, Ms. Matsui's boys create a poster exhibit to call attention to the matter.  Her boys lament that Anthony could have been their friend and that he could have been Ms. Matsui's student.  As a part of the ongoing discussion on the #blacklivesmatter movement, Ms. Matsui also invited Mr. Terrence McCrea, the author of "What Should We All Do After the Trayvon Martin Trial" as a guest speaker in her class.  For more information on the Anthony Weber case, please see http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-deputy-teen-shooting-20180209-story.html)

 


Parent, Mr. Brian Davis, assists in helping the boys put up their exhibit.
