Jon, an 8th grader in our PAZ After-School Program at PS 214 in the Bronx, wrote this poem as part of a PAZ project leading up to Martin Luther King Day. The project included discussions about Black Lives Matter, civil rights, breaking stereotypes, and police brutality. In writing the poem, says PAZ Director Bryanna Kolja,"Jon had what he calls an eye-opening experience. He captured the very essence of the liberation of our youth’s minds."
