Juarez High School students became co-researchers in a semester-long investigation of archives and media from student-led insurrections in their own community: 1968 at Harrison High School; 1973 at Froebel Extension; 2016 walkouts at Juarez High School.  Students  used primary sources, social practice and art-based research to develop interventions, art and questions, which they presented at national conferences in 2016.

Benito Juarez Academy High School students work with materials from yearbooks, archives and old newspapers that chronicle the uprisings at Froebel and Harrison high school, which led to the construction of their school.
