Encouraging Students to Write history...Not Just Study It!



Do you know the name and herstory of the woman pictured speaking below? 

The sistah shown speaking here is just one of many unnamed and unsung black folks in history. Before the somewhat recent book deals, cameras, lights and interviews appeared to share her story, there traveled and gathered a group of Treme neighborhood youth, leaders and teachers from New Orleans who recognized and honored her! TEACH STUDENTS TO WRITE HISTORY...NOT JUST STUDY IT!

And to one of my leading teacher mentors pictured here:  Thank you Baba Jerome "Big Duck" Smith for serving as one of THE GREATS! All hail Baba Treme!

  1. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more about this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but usually folks don't talk about these issues. To the next! Kind regards!! yahoo mail sign in
