Activity 4: Seeking and Defining Success
Share with participants the case of JK Delane, the African American senior at Richmond's Kennedy High, who, in spite of low SAT scores, says, "Wherever I go, I will be successful." Based on JK's quote, ask participants to address disparities in the way they define success for themselves and the way they believe it is defined in societal terms. Is the idea of success changing in our society? How and why? How many different roads are there to success? Ask adults to share personal stories.
