Apathy rules America. Or at least that’s the impression
most people have. Many people are dissatisfied with the
way the country is run, but don’t do anything about
it. Meanwhile, there is a powerful minority who are politically
active. Many of these activists are youth. The problem we
address in our video is the mythology that students are
apathetic and ignorant.
This video features several students at Oakland High who
are politically active. We aim to show the audience, not
only that there are kids in Oakland High who have strong
convictions and are willing to do the work tosee them realized,
but also to motivate latent activism in viewers.
