Powerful messages from students across Northeast Ohio as we celebrate Black History Month.

Here is Johnny Santana’s message:

“In my mind, Dr. King means a difference in daily life.
He made people realize we’re all equal.
He stood up for his rights as an African-American, when few others would.
He fought for equality so I wouldn’t have to go through what he did. 
Little things, like using the restroom;
Big things, like being in positions of power.
I hope to carry on his legacy by being a role model, living the dream, and doing my best to treat everyone the same.
If you see someone being mistreated, speak up.”
