There is a lot of talk about equity in government bodies, from the City Council to the national level, but the talk is vague and awkward. “Government has never led the way to equity,” said King. “It’s not equipped to do it. You can’t make a tank fly. We have to be very intentional to give people access to equity.”

That is the hope for people such as Smith, who answers questions with a polite, “yes, sir.”

“It’s a heartfelt city, and I want to do something to help out,” said Smith. “I have skills now that will always be in demand. I feel grateful to know I have somewhere to go after school.”
