Johnetta “Netta” Elzie, 26, is a passionate American civil rights activist. Elzie is one of the leaders of the “We The Protesters”, is a co-editor of the Ferguson Protest Newsletter, and has organized protest for civil rights in Ferguson.  She was awarded the 2015 “Howard Zinn Freedom to Write” award for her work with the Black Lives Matter movement.

Elzie grew up in North County St. Louis and studied journalism in college. She was even arrested during protests in downtown St. Louis on the steps of a federal courthouse. She has met with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and sat down with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss Campaign Zero—the ten-point solution to end police violence that Elzie helped develop.

About the Writer
Duane Wicker, Staff Writer

I’m a senior at Santaluces High School. I’ve been a student at Santaluces since Freshman year and this is my first year in Newspaper. I hope to share my interest in fashion, controversial topics, and entertainment. On my spare time I usually will watch fashion shows, exercise,  and try to come up with creative ideas to write and draw about. My plans after high school are to attend Palm Beach State College for 2 years, then transfer to the Fashion Institute of Technology and major in graphic design and journalism. I want to be a photographer, painter, and a personal stylist. I value helping people express themselves and helping people in need. Later in life I would love to help citizens in poverty financially and also become a therapist and mentor ex-convicts to help them get jobs and get back on their feet.
