From gun control to climate change to racial justice, young people are taking action to change the world - organizing marches and rallies, social media campaigns, lobbying lawmakers. What can young people learn from leaders from the past? How can storytelling play a role? Ahead of the Banneker-Douglass Museum's virtual conference for young people, we speak to David Fakunle, chair of the Maryland Lynching Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
