TULSA – Students at Booker T. Washington held a Black Lives Matter demonstration during the Friday pep assembly.

The school sent a statement Friday saying that every week the school holds a spirit stick competition but this week, instead of that competition, senior class members were going to hold a demonstration in response to the shooting of Terence Crutcher.

Booker T’s class of 2017 worked with sponsor Josh New and the school’s administration to plan this event, reports Tulsa Public Schools.

TPS went on to report that “student leaders on this effort include Class President Karl Baah, Men of Power President Warren Fuselier, student Khloe Downey, and Women Empowered member Denise Ssettimba.”
