Grades 4 – 6
Glenn Burke was a gay baseball player in the 1970s, and also the inventor of the high five. Sixth grader Silas decides to do a school report and presentation on Glenn Burke, but it feels more personal than just a school assignment, because Silas himself is gay, and in the closet. This assignment feels like his way of gearing up to coming out to his friends and family. When he does, how will they react?
