I participated in the College Board conference Dream Deferred: The Future of African American Education.
This was a powerful, awesome, and unbelievable conference. Educators, students and others discussed, brainstormed, engaged, networked, and collaborated. The highlight was Robert Townsend. Educators and students viewed his new film The Hive about a young man pulled from his father's gang and forced into a reform school . Afterwards, we engaged in profound and enlightening discussions. Townsend is a dynamic speaker and compassionate about making a difference in the lives of students and educators. He walks by faith and not by sight. This was an uplifting experience.
