Photos and Highlights from LAC High School Missions, Summer 2016

A group of high school students from Lake Avenue Church has embarked on a weeklong exploration and investigation of California and US history of race relations. We’ve spent the last few days in Oakland and San Francisco – some highlights include discussion of the Black Panther Party and police brutality, genocide of Native American groups (literal and cultural), migrant labor and abuse of Latinx workers, and Asian American heritage (immigration through Angel Island and yellow peril, and then today’s “model minority” phenomenon).
