Let's do our part to silence the haters.
The #Proud16 Should Graduate!
Earlier this week I wrote an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal talking about the controversy surrounding 16 Black women cadets at West Point who were being investigated for a photo they took with their fists raised. The academy eventually cleared them of any wrongdoing, but that hasn’t stopped some disgruntled opponents from flooding the school with calls demanding that these young women not be allowed to graduate.
If you agree that these attacks should stop, here’s what you can do. Mary Tobin, who has been the voice of the #Proud16 this week, offered these ways we can all show our support.
