"I wanted to stand up for my rights and for people of my same skin color. As an African American female, it's hard out here," said Lawrence, who will head to Central Michigan University in the fall. "I wanted to let it be known it doesn't matter what generation you are a part of, you can make a change."

"The project, involving 10 students from the city's public schools and 10 from the youth-led group, Detroit Heals Detroit, got underway Wednesday morning and is part of a citywide Juneteenth celebration. The painting will have an official unveiling Friday."
