Charter School peaceful protest

Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences, an Oakland University Public School Academy is on a mission to unite the nation. On Friday, June 12th DAAS students organized and led a peaceful protest called the ‘One Nation Youth March’ in support of racial equality and against police brutality. Students from several different charter schools in the city marched from the DAAS campus to Hart Plaza. The theme of the march, ‘One Nation’, came from the George Clinton and the Funkadelic song ‘One Nation Under the Groove ‘ a song the DAAS choir recently covered and received an Emmy award for its performance.
