Congratulations to the Western International VIBE Dream Team for making Michigan Chronicle’s “Best of Young Detroit” by promoting unity and diversity. The Dream Team, part of the Future Project, created a Unity Mural at Western, displaying portraits of the best examples of humanity. A few of the historical figures represented are civil rights activist Cesar Chavez, human rights advocate Malala Yousafzai, champion of education and women Rosa Parks, and American Civil Rights Movement activist Malcolm X. But that’s not all, the VIBE Dream Team is just getting started! They will also begin a courtyard beautification project to display positivity throughout Southwest Detroit.

“Wonderful presentations of diversity like this contribute to building a healthy climate in our school,” said Western Principal Angel Garcia. “As a result of this mural, our students feel more connected to each other, the school and the community, making them equal stakeholders in their own educational outcomes.”
