My name is Emerson Jade Dunham. I am a rising sophomore at Sumter High School in Sumter, South Carolina. I am 15 years old and sent this work as a voice for those who wish to see the Black Lives Matter movement through the eyes of a young African American. I wish for others to take a stand and do all they can for human rights to be given. Even if they can’t protest they at least know the issues out there.
