Deschooling DC

By July 25, 2018 February 4th, 2019 No Comments

Support letter #2 is here! Plus, a beautiful sentiment from a new mother, based in PG County with roots in DC. She (Najai Knox) started Deschooling DC as a means to resolve the issues that school causes and perpetuates, particularly for Black children. Listen to Najai’s story–her why and what–and email her to encourage our support the movement toward liberated living and learning for DC’s most underserved families. Najai is imagining life beyond her city’s circumstances, and she isn’t waiting for the government, or anyone, to do for her, what she knows that we, as Black folks, know how to do for ourselves. We just need to go back and remember, then come forward and put it into practice. #Sankofa¬† #BIPOCinSDE
