The Newtonite reports on Black Culture Awareness Day, held at Newton North High School.
Here’s two excerpts from three different students who were on a panel..
“The METCO office is like a home and a safe-haven,” said freshman Roxanne Wint. Another student claimed, “I’m not just another black student; in METCO they know who I am.”
They also discussed the idea that all black students must be from Boston. One student said, “People assume I’m from Boston and that I always have to catch the bus, but I live across the street!”
