NYC Freedom to Learn Rally

Students, parents, educators and activists made their voices heard at the College Board headquarters during the New York City Freedom to Learn Rally. Impassioned speeches from two BELA Academy high school students, Victoria Kirby York, Myles Hollingsworth, Key Jackson, Akil Bello, Michelle Akyempong, Stacie N.C. Grant, V (formerly Eve Ensler), Anthony Harmon, Kimberlé Crenshaw, and Rev. Al Sharpton fired up the Freedom to Learn Network in person and across the country tuning in virtually. While Myles and other organizers delivered our demands to the College Board, our speakers delivered the call to action for all of us to not give up the fight. Images by Mia Fermindoza
