Asean Johnson is only 9 years old, but he speaks like a full-blown adult. And for a good reason. He is speaking to a group of activists who are protesting the closure of 53 schools. After this speech, the Chicago Board of Education agreed to spare 4 schools, including Asean’s own Marcus Garvey Elementary. When you hear Asean’s speech, you’ll understand why.
