In the 10th episode of Cambridge Uncovered, NeighborMedia reporter Beverly Mire sits down with three Cambridge teens to talk about their roles as activists in the community. Mire interviews Mari Gashaw, a Cambridge Rindge and Latin School student heavily involved with organizing events around Black Lives Matter, including the “Hands Up Student Walkout” last year; Christy Felix, a Community Charter School of Cambridge student who started the campus club, “One Problem at a Time,” and serves as a deacon in the youth ministry at First Holiness Church; and Yanka Petri, a CRLS student and CCTV Youth Media Program participant who is interested in feminism, but questions if she should be considered a feminist or an activist based off her preconceived notions of what those terms mean.
