Now let’s get to next steps!

Guiding questions for your reading, writing, thinking and acting:

  1. Research Thurgood Marshall, look for what influence “seeing” Emmet’s ghost may have had on his life. Share what you learn in our comment section below or on social media #socialjusticelearnanddo. 
  2. Honor the ghosts of those killed by racist violence. What action will you take today to contribute to the”friendship, kindness, understanding, peace” Parker Rhodes refers to? Share your action with us in our comment section below or on social media #socialjusticelearnanddo.

We look forward to hearing from you!
