Many folks who champion the legacy of MLK, only speak of patience, non-violence and peace. So, it makes sense that there are more than a few folks on the “interwebs” complaining about the recent Bay Bridge protest on MLK Day.
This is a very inspiring story I wanted to share. Representation REALLY MATTERS. I’ve posted on this topic before, but it’s really important for all our kids to see themselves as LEAD characters in books.
I am beginning to actually dread MLK Day. Why? Because more and more I’m realizing how much we are all inundated with MLK Day “Lite”.
Many parents unwittingly perpetuate segregation in our schools. Why school “choice” is hurting us and our schools.
For anyone who still thinks race “doesn’t matter” this is a chilling tale of why that’s flat our dangerous for some black folks.
Recently I began hosting a Black Family Breakfast at my girls’ school for black and mixed-race families as an effort to “explore race and culture.”

CARE proponents (read: Lowell families) who originally marketed their proposal as “two-track accelerated Algebra” have repackaged their plan using the words “optional pathways” and “choice” to advocate for a reinstatement of tracking in SFUSD.
Does your child’s school library have a diversity gap? What about your child’s classroom library?
Hosting a Black Family Breakfast is a great way for Black families to get to get involved in making your school a better place for all students.
