About Face: Portraits of Activism, is a student journalism project in which twelfth grade writers profile over 30 social activists in New York City. The book grows out of a 15-week study of the history of social change. This twelfth grade curriculum investigates community leaders and those working to create social change and positive impact on our society in both historical and contemporary contexts. Copies of About Face were distributed to select ninth grade social studies classrooms around New York City. One of the goals of SPI is to find innovative ways to use each of our student publications as a text for further learning in other classrooms. Subjects profiled in the first issue include filmmaker Spike Lee, television journalist Anderson Cooper and historian Eric Foner.
