COMMUNITY OUTREACH, MEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL, MEDFORD VOCATIONAL TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL CCSR Project, Entitled “The Coloring Book”

The MPS Blog is pleased to feature another wonderful Center for Citizenship and Social Responsibility project called,  “The Coloring Book” by Jenny Lu and Antonia Collins.  This is the description of their project…

“Our efforts in CCSR this year are dedicated to the creation and publication of a book called The Coloring Book. Our book features poems written by Jenny and short stories based on interviews conducted by Antonia. The theme of The Coloring Book is racial justice, and in it you can find the struggles, successes, and inspirational perseverance of people of color in and around the Medford community. Those featured in our book represent a variety of ages, races, ethnicities, orientations, beliefs, and experiences, but have in common a factor of themselves that makes aspects of their journeys similar yet very unique. Through The Coloring Book, we hope to provide comfort and hope, a sense of community and confidence, for people of color. We want you to love your skin, your culture, your differences, and know that you belong.”
