Video Of Lone Protester In National School Walkout Goes Viral

A video taken by a North Carolina teenager, capturing himself as the lone person who left his school to participate in the National School Walkout on Wednesday, has gone viral.

Justin Blackman, 16, was the only student to walk out of his school in Wilson Preparatory Academy in support of the movement. The video he filmed received widespread admiration, as prominent people streamed in with love and support for the teenager who stood up for what he believes in.

In the video tweeted by Blackman, he can be heard saying, “It’s National Walkout Day, I’m the only one in my school out here. No one here but me. They didn’t really get into it too much. No one really said anything.”
