On March 19th, 2014, African American student organizations united dressed in all black for what was called “Black Out Day”. Black Out Day symbolized black unity across the campus of Northern Illinois University. The black clothing was not only a symbol of unity, but also represented the movements of the 1960’s and the people that paved the way for us all. “Black Out Day” not only brought together the Black community on the campus of a Predominately White Institution, but reminded the students of African decent we are ONE.
This is my school! Those are my edubbs!!!!!
This powerful image is from one of the memorials last night for 16-year-old Maren Sanchez.
Maren was stabbed to death in her high school stairwell on the morning of the prom. She was killed for allegedly turning down a young man’s invitation to be her prom date.
Her classmates paid tribute by dressing up, and bringing out the gown she would have worn to the prom. Even though this memorial was a sorrowful and traumatic event, the students smiled through their tears for the camera because… Maren would have wanted them to be happy on their prom night.
I grew up in Milford, CT, and I live about 15 minutes away from Jonathan Law High School. My partner attended JLHS and I have friends with family members who currently attend.
With the Sandy Hook shooting in December 2012, I can’t believe that here we are again, just a year later, with another tragedy in a Connecticut school.
My heart goes out to all of those affected.
Sharing memorial images for a young woman that never should have died.
