Phillip Sossou honors every class mate of Boston Latin School Class of 2016 with a drawing

Phillip Sossou, 18, drew portraits of every member of the class of 2016.  He hung all 411 pictures in the hallways of his school as his classmates were getting ready to say goodbye, The Boston Globe reported.

His motive was to reunite the Class after several complaints about racism were placed against the faculty. He wanted everyone in his class to realize that while each was unique they all were special. “Our class has been kind of divided,” said Sossou. “Having these pictures helps us to embrace our diversity.”
