Almost one out of three young men of color do not graduate from Georgia high schools. In fact, Georgia suffers as one of 5 states with the worst high school graduation rates in the country. On the other hand, there are male students of color who do extremely well. Remember their faces. Remember their names. For they are using their talent to inspire and mold younger students. They are our future movers and shakers. They are known as Colored Rocks.
