In the aftermath of the Parkland shooting and other incidents of discrimination and violence, Director of Arts & Gifted and Talented Education Evelyn Collins reflected on the impact of young people as activists and advocates for human rights. This reflection inspired “And the Children Shall Lead Them,” a presentation that culminates three weeks of hard work by students in the Arts Magnet summer bridge program. Historic events, including apartheid and the civil rights movement, will be explored through music, dance, poetry and the visual arts.
