Understanding “the other” takes careful listening and empathy, but those skills and emotions aren’t always achieved by most adults. What if we told you 6th graders are learning how to be good listeners and empathetic neighbors? Over the past few months, students at Inspire Academy in Muncie, Indiana, have met with partners in the community who have been labeled as “the other” due to religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation, and they’ve created an art exhibit on display in the community that celebrates the lives of each individual. One of their partners was our own J.R. Jamison. Join us as he sits down with the class and their teacher to discuss the project and how it has changed their way of thinking, and interacting, day-to-day.
