Jim Vincent Visits Central Falls High School

Jim Vincent visited the English class of teachers Jordana Ruggeri and Marcela Garces at Central Falls High School. The class is reading “The Hate U Give” and it has ignited so many quality and in depth discussions about social justice, media injustice and themes of racism, code switching, double consciousness, and the power of words and our environment. Mr. Vincent was invited to talk about his work which prompted many students to be interested in starting a chapter of the NAACP at CFHS.

Hopefully the power of the novel and Mr. Vincent’s message will ignite students to become voices rather than echoes.
