The Reclaiming Our Origins Through Story (R.O.O.T.S.) Project is the narrative component of the Sunflower County Systems Change Project (SCSCP). The SCSCP is a community-based systems change approach that addresses school discipline, juvenile justice and media narrative of young men and boys of color (YMBOC). It is a partnership effort between the ACLU of Mississippi, Mississippi Center for Justice, Sunflower County Consolidated School District and its P-16 Council that began in 2015.

Below are a few blogs from our attendees.
