Next Generation


April 26, 2013 - 12:40 am

Langston Bowens is a high school senior at Grosse Pointe South in Michigan, and helped arrange for Sen. Rick Santorum to speak at his school. But a funny thing happened after the speech was announced: School district officials changed their minds and cancelled the event. The story may have ended there, but Langston Bowens refused to be bullied by officials he felt objected to the speech based on their own, personal beliefs, so he took a stand. Col. Allen West sat down with Langston at the Reagan Center library in Santa Barbara to find out how he was able to challenge the system…and win.

What a fine young man.

School administrative oppression must be in the local water, Oakland University is only 30 miles from Gross Pointe. Good thing he's headed to Hillsdale:

Bravo to Langston Bowen for his principled and tenacious stand and kudos to Col. West for bringing this to our attention.

I'm looking forward to many more great contributions to America from both of you in the coming years!
