The Press Corps November Editorial!
Written by Teen Editorial Staff members Anya Shukla and Lily Williamson.
What do you think of when you hear the word “November”? Thanksgiving? Fall? Homework? Boredom? How about “midterms” or “politics”? For those lucky TeenTix members who are of voting age and ready to make their voices heard, the word “November” will probably inspire excitement and fear—the fate of the government is in their hands. The rest of us, however, will have to settle for seeing political and social justice-themed art.
From a guitar god who felt boxed in by racial stereotypes to an interactive piece about protests, from a talk about the Obamas to the legacy of Muhammad Ali, we’ve got a packed month ahead. We’ll be exploring political-themed events through all of November, so you can dive into politics even after the election.

But for those of you who are tired of constant cycle of election news—don’t despair! We’re also covering improv and a high school theater festival, so you can catch a break from the midterms, even if only for an hour and a half.
So join us at NAAM, MOHAI, Town Hall, SCT, Comedy Sportz, and 14:48 HS to celebrate the serious and the humorous, the happy and the sad—the political and the personal.
