Wisdom of Youth

David Dwight, executive director and lead strategy catalyst for Forward Through Ferguson, has been working on issues of racial justice in the St. Louis region since he was an intern with the Ferguson Commission in 2015. But despite his experience, he is still often the youngest person in the room — and has seen a frequent bias against youth in those conversations. In this video, he explains the unique wisdom and perspective that comes from that youth, and why it matters to St. Louis as the region works toward racial equity.
