South Philadelphia High School Students Rally To Stop School Violence
A year ago, the sight of Asian and African-American students standing together outside of South Philadelphia High School would have been difficult to envision. After a series of violent incidents on school grounds that led to an eight-day boycott by Asian students protesting a lack of safety, a coalition of Asian and African-American students stood together on Broad Street in front of the school yesterday in a show of solidarity. Duong-Nghe Ly, an 18-year old senior at the high school whose brother was one of the students victimized by the bullying, delivered a populist plea to stop bullying across the country, touching on some recent incidents involving gay students as well.
