At Goldstein High School in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, a student named Rahmel creates the school’s first Black Student Union alongside Mr. Blackmon, one of few black teachers at Goldstein. They speak to the importance of teacher diversity, and having a safe cultural space for students to engage in important discourse. As a result, the two have paved a path for others at the school (Latinos, women, LGBTQ) to create spaces of their own.
