I was indeed very surprised to find such conservative thinkers of color such as myself. I am very thankful to Dr. Elam for posting this blog on his site. As I continue to devour all aspects of law and political science I find interesting, I hope with this list of people Dr. Elam has inlighten me with I can broaden my views and knowledge on a higher level than before. I have a deep passion for politics and law and to see people of my own skin color who think like or similar to myself is very comforting. I hope other African American teens who have a passion for politics and law like I do become aware of these influential people so they to can broaden there horizon. Again thank you sincerely Dr. Elam for making me aware.

You are most welcome, I will be posting your comments on the Lancaster Rotary Blog. By the way,would you be interested in starting a College Film Festival with your fellow students at Lancaster High this fall? What I have in mind is screening several serious films about rites of passage and then having a discussion about it on the UNT Dallas Campus? My first pick, why
the best college bound film ever, The Paper Chase!

I think that would be a great idea. I haven't seen Paper Chase! before but I did do some quick research and it seems like a very interesting movie. A lot of intellectual students might take a serious interest in the "College Film Festival." It would open the doors to great discussions and allow us to understand time and change. I think choosing films pertaining to rites of passage is a good idea. As many teens/young adults struggle with social and economic status, watching movies pertaining to this topic will not only enlighten but give students the chance to discuss those particular statuses whatever they maybe in an intellectual environment. I definitely look forward to hearing more about this project, this is something I personally think could be very successful with the proper planning and critiquing.
