"The Cottonwood School of Civics and Science hosted a Black Lives Matter protest and march in the South Waterfront on Thursday, June 18, 2020. The march began at the school and moved to Elizabeth Caruthers Park, where participants from our school community were joined by other onlookers and neighborhood residents. Kamari Rivers, 8, read his poem to the assembled crowd after remarks from Amanda McAdoo, Cottonwood’s executive director. The march concluded with a return to the school, where participants hung their posters around the school fence as a visual symbol of Cottonwood’s commitment to racial justice and equity."
