Multiracial Hands Making a Circle

After racist graffiti showed up outside a Rock Hill high school, three art students showed the town their true colors Monday afternoon painting a message of equality.

Advanced Placement art students, Andrew Swiger, Madison Wightman and Quinton Cole painted an image of the Earth on a large rock outside South Pointe High School with the words “We are all =”.
