Congratulations to Evanston resident and recent Evanston Township High School (ETHS) graduate Kennedy Freeman, who was featured in last Friday's Chicago Tribune article that focused on young artists responding to protests following the murder of George Floyd.
You can read the entire article here.
Freeman, who told Trib reporter Ariel Cheung that when she sees news stories about slain Black men like Arbery and Floyd, she can't help but think of her twin brother.
“I’m really close with him. It resonates with me a lot,” said Freeman. “I put a lot of emotion into every one of my pieces, because I really feel like I can relate to them, especially as a Black woman.”
