Common Ground on Race
Logan Thomas • TEDxCapeMay
Born and living in a predominantly white town, Logan Thomas is aware of how a small difference in skin tone can grow into large misconceptions and stereotypes about race. While promoting equality throughout society, however and wherever she can, she’s on a mission to find common ground in all corners of the world. Logan embraces her culture in just about everything she does. In deconstructing how African-American music, food, style, and even physical appearance influence society, her ultimate goal is to underline the intrinsic value of black lives. Logan is a senior at Middle Township High School. She is an active member in her school’s Key Club, Red Cross Club, Student Council, Class Office, as well as the Soccer, Basketball, and Golf teams. As a young passionate activist, she uses her platform in her community to illustrate racial equality and recognize how African-Americans are a powerful force that cannot be devalued. She is also an active member in Jack & Jill of America, Inc., a family organization dedicated to nurturing future African American leaders by strengthening children through leadership development and volunteer service. She aspires to study aerospace engineering and pursue a career in the commercial space field.
