Martin Luther King (MLK) Prep in Memphis is working hard to live up to the high standards set by its namesake.

Only a few years, this 98 percent black school (91 percent of the students were eligible for a free lunch) was named Frayser High School. Perhaps the decision was made to change the name to MLK Prep because in 2011, the nation’s media outlets got easy quick-bait with a story from this blackest of schools where it was noted 90 girls attending the school were pregnant.

And now, comes this news courtesy of the 98 percent black MLK Prep. [Enough is enough: Memphis teens are sick of the violence, Fox13 Memphis, 1-14-16]:

In the first 14 days of the New Year, 12 people have been killed. Four of the victims were 18 years old or younger.

Aleshia Moody, Yadarius Joyner and Keante Love are all students at MLK Prep. They have spoken with FOX13 several times about their thoughts of Memphis.”Memphis is a dangerous city,” Joyner said.
