Cameron Boyce has teamed up with Disney XD for a touching tribute to The Clinton 12 for Black History Month.
In the brand-new interstitial, which is part of the “Be Inspired” series, the 16-year-old actor, his sister, parents and grandmother make their first visit together to the monument, its 12 life-size sculptures of the students and cultural history museum in Clinton, Tenn.
The Clinton 12 were the twelve historical African-American teens who were first to integrate a public school in the South in 1956, and Cameron‘s grandmother, Jo Ann Allen Boyce, was one of them.
“My Nana is part of “The Clinton 12,” Cameron said in a statement. “I’ve always known she is incredible and now, everyone else will know too.”
The “Be Inspired” interstitial will premiere ahead of a future Gravity Falls and during an episode of K.C. Undercover on Disney XD and Disney Channel.
