We recognized there are many negative images of Black people. The purpose of the breakfast was to give Black students the opportunity to counter those perceptions with positive images. One of the ways we do this is through positive affirmations. After reciting the Starr King Affirmation, students wrote their own and many chose to recite them for the audience. Once student returned to class, Ms. Martin and Mr. Fitzsimons heard from parents about what they wanted for their students while they attended Starr King.
