Unity within the black community at your school sounds like a very important issue to tackle. I think it would also be beneficial to use this club to create larger unity between races, as hard as it can seem. Even talking about race and how it impacts students has been useful in integrating my own highly segregated school in Manhattan. If you are interested in race and education, I am working on a program to make sure that every student in the country receives a fair, quality education and we are looking for Lead Activists to begin projects in their schools. The application is due on December 5th and we would love to have you!! https://www.nylc.org/page/lead-activist-application
I completely agree. Young people should spear head systemic education change, have the power to do so, and we hope to educate and empower communities into action! Seeing different approaches to education equity will be interesting, and we are still working on a system of evaluation to determine what works. After the first few cohorts, we will have to discuss how much we will contribute to Lead Activists in terms of advice and requirements for their projects. Thank you for the support!!
