Mr. A
57:27
1st time I've cried at an Equity Talk!
Mr. A
57:52
Tears of Joy these stories and young people are remarkable!
Nina Sclafani

Jason Buccheri
01:02:15
This is SO powerful!
Dr. Jaime Aquino, SVP, Discovery Education
01:02:57
Powerful words from Principal Grayson.
Stephanie Workman-Bolden
01:03:41
There's a level of introspection that happens at that museum that's indescribable. It's beautiful see how you experienced this together
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:04:25
I think this is a powerful moment. It’s also important to know that when we don’t tell a complete history that is inclusive, we do a disservice to Black students but also all of the other students who will only see Black existence through a limited lens. So important for everyone.
Stacey Ridgeway
01:04:45
Remarkable story Principal Grayson! Thank you for sharing so openly.
Sarah Johangiry
01:05:06
Taking your experience to action is so inspiring.
Susanne Thompson
01:09:40
@Keishla - 100%
Mr. A

#Boldness
Sarah Johangiry
01:14:15
Thank you for pushing, not giving up, and persevering.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:14:15
Thank you for sharing that Ms. Roberts. There is risk in doing this necessary work!
Nina Sclafani
01:14:27
I’m so sorry that you had to live with that fear with your job. But that is amazing and brave and necessary!
Michelle Ferebee
01:18:09
Is the staff at your school predominantly white? How did you get buy-in?
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:22:29
That’s so important. There are so many behaviors and practices that you learn from your family about what to do and how to be as a Black person that is rooted in the oppression of the Black experience. So many of those lessons are rooted in survival.
Mr. A
01:22:30
Is it possible to get an invite to your podcast? I would love to make a blanket but some what personalized invitation for the students and families here at my school? I think it would have an incredible impact? I will also build a listening group from my summer school team!!
Mr. A
01:23:07
I would host this for my students.
