When Naahlyee Bryant, 15, (above left) stood during Sunday's rally to talk about what witnessing a teacher spew a racial epithet, he was working within a family tradition of activism that spans at least to his grandmother (top right), the prominent Chicago activist Marion Nzinga Stamps (1945-96), who fought for the rights of Cabrini-Green residents. Bryant's mother, Tara Stamps (bottom right, who was vocal during the rally), is a community activist and Chicago Public Schools teacher who ran for alderman on the West Side in 2015.
