Phillip Sossou is a high school senior at Boston Latin High School, which has had a significant amount of racial tension over the last year. He decided he wanted to celebrate all 411 of his classmates as a special graduation gift so he used his artistic talent to work and created wonderful charcoal portraits of each and every student.

According to Buzzfeed Sossou is headed to Bunker Hill Community College this fall and is then hoping to attend the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, after. I hope he continues to find ways to use his art to bring joy and bring together community!
