Faces of Diversity unveiled at Northwest School of the Arts

Artist Edwin Gil, in collaboration with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ (CMS) Character Development Department, recently unveiled his second Faces of Diversity at Northwest School of the Arts. Faces of Diversity encourages dialogue and sensitivity among students, staff, and the community through art. It is an anti-bullying initiative through CMS’ Making It Better program.
Northwest junior, Keston Steele, was selected to represent the second Faces of Diversity because of her own struggles in overcoming bullying. She is currently starring as Celie in the acclaimed production of The Color Purple at Northwest. Steele, a performer at heart, has also played the roles of Ado Annie in Oklahoma!, Dorothy in the Wiz, and Rizzo in Grease.

A special thank you to all of the Faces of Diversity sponsors: Greg and Connie Crumpton, AirTight; Omar and Miriam Jorge, Compare Foods; Make It Better; and the U.S. Attorney’s Office – Wester District of NC.
