College Track Alumna, Kyra Brown, is Featured in Youth Speaks’ Inspiring “An American Story” Video

Kyra Brown, College Track East Palo Alto alumna and spoken word poet, participated in a powerful video highlighting Inside Out 11M, an art initiative aimed at creating a portrait of America that includes immigrants and the descendants of immigrants alike.

Beyond any political debate about the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., these portraits remind us that behind the numbers are real human stories. Inside Out 11M seeks to represent the diversity and unity of people that can call America home.

The project takes part in Inside Out, a global participatory art project initiated by the award-winning artist JR to pay tribute to the power and dignity of individuals by displaying their portraits in public spaces around the world. People share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.
