On April 11th, the Advanced Video Production team at the West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology was able to film some of Mister Mustafa Santiago Ali’s day here in Grand Rapids. This included a lunch with the Environmental Club at City High Middle School, a talk at City High Middle School, and a talk at Aquinas College. This was an amazing experience. Not only were we able to see Mr. Ali speak, we were also able to see our fellow students learn and be inspired. At both the Aquinas talk and the City High Middle School, Mr. Ali discussed climate change from a different perspective than students usually hear. He discussed the role of race and class in climate change. We would like to express our gratitude to Mr. Ali and his team for informing and inspiring.
