Book Launch

Detroit Collegiate High School's very own ELA teacher, Ms. Darby, has helped her 9th and 10th Graders develop a publication entitled Forbidden Tears. Forbidden Tears was written with a goal to combat student trauma in the classroom. Students have contributed their once silenced voices to this project in hopes of turning their pain into power. Unedited and raw, students share their compelling stories of trauma in the form of essays, poems and written narratives. 


Come celebrate the launch of Forbidden Tears as we read and sign copies of the book, giveaway raffle and door prizes, and actually talk about trauma in the black community. Proceeds from the book publishing will help fund a school trip to Costa Rica to see a world beyond their own individual boundaries and further heal from their trauma.

Hope to See You There!
