Writers Against Racism: Walk This Way…

In NYC, anything can happen and anything can be witnessed with the naked eye. Which is why when I saw this 60-year old woman, walking down the side of  The Whitney Museum, YES, THE SIDE, I said, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! I have such faith in today’s educators to take their reading lists to the next level for our 21st century readers. Just imagine, after you watch these clips, if a student had a book in school entitled “I’m 60 And Walking Down Walls.”  Diversity is the key…take a look.

This first clip is of onlookers wondering and looking UP…WHAT?!

This next clip, is the actual WALK down the side of The Whitney Museum. You will also hear the LOVELY sound of frustrated cab drivers.

The last clip was videotaped by my daughter, who was enthralled by the interview with NY1News.
