It Takes One: N.C. Black Student Only One To Walk Out For Parkland Shooting Protest

Like most students around the nation, North Carolina student Justin Blackman prepared to walk out of class at 10 a.m. on Wednesday to protest the Parkland, Florida high school shooting.

When the time came Justin calmly got up and exited his Spanish class only to find out that he was the only one participating according to CNN.

Of the 700 students that attend the Wilson Preparatory Academy in Wilson, North Carolina, Justin was the only one outside for the national school walkout.

For 17 minutes, one for each person killed in the shooting, Justin stood outside disappointed that no one came. Earlier that morning he spoke with fellow classmates who seemed to have no clue about it.

“Umm… hello Twitter, there’s going to be like six people watching this hopefully,” Justin expressed in a video posted to his account. “It’s National Walkout Day, I’m the only one from my school out here.”

After 17 minutes, Justin headed back to his Spanish class hoping he wouldn’t get in trouble. To his surprise he didn’t get in trouble but instead congratulated for stepping out.

Deeply understanding the importance in what he did Justin explained, “Now, I truly know that one person is all it takes.” He continued, “No matter the age, skin color, gender—it doesn’t matter.”

Although shocked that students didn’t participate, Justin’s mom Megan was not surprised that her son took part in the walk out.

“Justin is very opinionated,” explained Megan. “He’s not a follower. Strong minded.”

CNN reached out to the school for a comment

“We teach our students to be independent thinkers,” explained school representative Janet Conor-Knox. “Blackman is an independent thinker.”
