It was the ladies turn recently to inspire and teach our youth during Martin Luther King Elementary School’s 13th annual African American Female Teach-in. Sponsored by the schools Parent Teacher Organization and the school’s governance council, the event–similar to the African American Male Teach-in held last month–is held to expose the King female students to professional Black women and their accomplishments in the community, city and state.
The Teach-ins symbolize the commitment by its adult participants to the collective education and leadership development of Black youth.
