High School Kids in the Bronx Reflect on Obama's Race Speech [VIDEO]
Students at the Bronx High School of Performance and Stagecraft watch and discuss Barack ObamaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s speech on racial reconciliation and how it relates to their lives. Listen to these young people. A teacher took the time to draw these young people out and make it a safe environment to bring up hard issues and he facilitated a healthy discussion about becoming politically engaged.
