What I’ve Learned: King Walker, Booker T. Washington High School senior
Growing up, King Walker, a high school senior from Bankhead, knew about presidential elections, but he knew little, if anything, about local elections.
“Nobody taught me really about voting and democracy,” the Booker T. Washington High School student told Atlanta Civic Circle. “I just knew that the presidential election was big, but the rest of the elections I really didn’t think mattered that much.”
That’s no longer the case.
