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.
In 2016, Juarez High School Students present their interventions and arts based research at the National Art Education Association Conference, and at the Inter-University Program for Latino Research conference and symposium, Latino Art Now!
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.
