Freedom School Coordinator Brittney Thrower, left, talks with, from left, Alysia Jaco, Soleil Newman and Talia Baker this week while practicing for their role in Monday's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. Hourlong Freedom School sessions focus on  literacy, history, identify and social change with junior high and high school students.

QUINCY — In the midst of a busy week of school and activities, Soleil Newman can draw on the wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

King’s words — “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl.” — inspire the Quincy eighth-grader to keep moving forward no matter what.
