Rad Teen Print of the Week: Give Us Numbers

November 9, 2010

Give%20Us%20Numbers%20print.jpg

M’Antayla Jackson created this silkscreen print in protest of the strict school uniform policy at her school.
The text reads:
“Do you think Urban Pathways Charter High uniforms seem to be taking our identity away? I do!! Each year they have added more and more uniform policies. We are banned from wearing hoop earrings and colore shoes, we have to have our shirts tucked in at all times, a black or brown belt, white undershirt, a certain pair of paints, and black or white socks. We are not allowed to wear more than two rings, our jewelry has to be tucked. They are taking our identity away. It seems like we’re in jail. If you break any one of these uniform policies you will be punished. I think since they have gone this far they might as well take away our names and just give us numbers.”
Go girl go!!!
