All American Boys By Reynolds and Kiely

Presentation by: Ms. Galvin

Two boys . . . One story

Rashad is the VICTIM.

Quinn in the BYSTANDER

POLICE BRUTALITY.

FEAR.

Quinn must pick a side. Will he defend Rashad? A boy he barely knows? OR will he side with his police officer mentor, Paul?
Loyalty. Honor. Integrity.

Quinn says, "But it wasn't about loyalty. It was about [my dad] standing up for what he believed in. And I wanted to be my dad's son , someone who believed a better world was possible -- someone who stood up for it" (267).

Reynolds and Kiely Confront Racial inequality. Racism is still a problem today, and we must all stand up for what we know is right.
