Building Bridges with Art and Music  |  Lynnfield  |  2003 

The "Building Bridges" multicultural schools presentation successfully used art, music and dance to build intercultural exchange and understanding between Lynnfield's white and urban African-American METCO students. The evening consisted of performances by Lynnfield High School music ensembles, hip hop, and gospel groups, and a display of art work reflecting METCO students' lives in their urban communities. METCO is a private non-profit organization that seeks to eliminate racial imbalance by providing educational opportunities for Boston students of color in participating suburban towns.
