#BringBackOurGirls – Inwood Stands in Solidarity with Nigeria’s Missing Girls and their Families

By Arlene Schulman (@ArleneSchulman)

From the Dyckman Houses to Dyckman Street and points north to the end of Inwood, neighborhood residents stand in solidarity with the 300 girls abducted from their boarding school in Nigeria by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram.

“They’re our girls,” said one woman from the Dyckman Houses, a public housing complex on the far east side of Inwood. “They’re everyone’s girls.”
