      He discusses the weekend activists, the people who participate in protest marches after some appalling murder of an unarmed black man, and then return home feeling they have done something.

We sit in underfunded schools, walk the blocks burdened with police corruption, stand within an audience of Make America Great Again hats, journey from trap house to university lecture, and rally in neglected streets.

My thing is, create the content that high schoolers can relate to and see themselves in. He discusses the weekend activists, the people who participate in protest marches after some appalling murder of an unarmed black man, and then return home feeling they have done something.
