"It's important for young people to understand that they have a role to play in the fight for social change. Many of our social justice movements have been led by young people who have simply been fed up with the status quo. If you look at what happened in the 1950's and 60's, we saw young people become involved in the Civil Rights movement, college students jumping on buses from Northern States and going to the South to register African Americans to vote. We need that same type of energy and motivation to change the status quo now," said Dr. Nekima Levy-Pounds.
