Please watch: “Saving Central”

favicon Last post I wrote about “Resegregation in the American South,” an outstanding article by Nikole Hannah-Jones about resegregation in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

I encourage you to watch this short documentary, “Saving Central,” by Maisie Crow.

I wish more U.S. Government and Economics teachers taught Brown v. Board not just as a landmark Supreme Court case but also with an emphasis on what has happened after the ruling.

I wish more U.S. History teachers taught the Civil Rights movement with a focus on the recent effects of mass incarceration, as outlined in Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow.

There is not an issue about which I care more deeply than the role of equitable education on advancing civil rights in our country. favicon
