High school students talk politics and race

This is a long video, but worth watching. A group of students at the South Bronx High School of Performance and Stage Craft talk about the presidential elections, how they’re becoming politically informed, and the future of race in America.
The piece is focused on how Barack Obama’s candidacy has inspired them, but it goes far beyond that. They write their own “Yes We Can” speeches about the things they want to do with their lives and to change the world.

    I loved it until I saw the “brought to you by Obama” graphic at the end.
