LHWHS Senior Facilitates Social Justice Change Discussion

Kaitlin Crawford poses at the event.

Congratulations to LHWHS senior Kaitlin Crawford for her selection as a lead facilitator of a discussion on social justice in change in schools! The discussion was held after a screening of “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution,” a  documentary presented by Nine Network and the Missouri History Museum.

The event was held on Wednesday, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m. at the Missouri History Museum. The synopsis for the film from the event page follows: “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution” is the first feature-length documentary to explore the Black Panther Party’s significance to the broader American culture, its cultural and political awakening of black people, and the painful lessons wrought when a movement derails. Master documentarian Stanley Nelson goes straight to the source, weaving rare archival footage with the voices of people who were there: police, FBI informants, journalists, white supporters and detractors, and Black Panthers who remained loyal to the party and those who left it.”

Kaitlin was chosen as a facilitator through the Ladue School Broadcast Technology partnership with PBS. We are so proud of how well Kaitlen represented Ladue Schools! She is pictured in the middle of the students on the right.
