721Q Students Speak at Queens Public Hearing, Make News in The NY Times and The Globe

Last week, five students from the 721Q Eagles made the news for speaking at Queens Borough Hall during a public hearing commissioned by the mayor on the removal of “symbols of hate” from city property.

One of the students, Trashawn Pace, was quoted as saying, “I believe the statues of people who hurt others to become famous should be removed,” Mr. Pace said. “No one should ever have to suffer to make another person so famous that they get to be remembered forever.”
