South High Students Committed to Racial Sensitivity and Equity –

A group of high school students from South High School in Minneapolis join Kinshasha on MLK Day to talk about the work they are doing at their school.

The group name is START, “Students Together Against Racial Tension.” They are a small, diverse group of concerned students committed to racial sensitivity and action steps that will make South an inclusive environment for all students.

These students are writing articles for their high school paper, The Southerner” developing a race-oriented column to
which students are able to contribute.

Their goal is to have their group and other groups write about stereotypes they see in society and their reactions to them, review articles about racism and cultural privilege, and interview staff and each other about why equity and integration are so important.
