John Proctor is the Villain
by Kimberly Belflower

In present day Appalachian Georgia, a high school class explores the seminal American classic, The Crucible.

Hooded or Being Black for Dummies
By Tearrance Arvelle Chisolm
A student-driven project.
Spring 2022
Marquis and Tru are both fourteen-year-old black boys, but they exist in two totally different worlds. Marquis is a book smart prep-schooler living in the affluent suburb of Achievement Heights; while Tru is a street savvy kid from deep within the inner city of Baltimore. Their worlds overlap one day in a holding cell. Tru decides that Marquis has lost his “blackness” and pens a how-to manual entitled “Being Black for Dummies”. He assumes the role of professor, but Marquis proves to be a reluctant pupil. They butt heads, debate, wrestle and ultimately prove that Nietzsche and 2pac were basically saying the same thing.
