Ashley Chatmon, BSU President at Flagler College

Ashley Chatmon Black Student Union President Flagler College

"As a student, and especially as a high school student, you may feel helpless. While adults argue about preserving your physical safety at school, they're also coming for what you're allowed to learn, whose history is worth learning, whose feelings must be protected. Your books are being banned, your plays are being canceled. Well, I'm here to tell you to never underestimate the learning you can obtain outside of school. I implore you to get in touch with your community leaders. I implore you to know your history. The public library is free. Take your education into your own hands, because no one can take that away from you."
