Telling the Truth About MLK and What We Left in 2023

As we embark on a new year filled with hope and determination, we extend a warm welcome to our dedicated allies who share our vision of providing a quality education for Black children and cultivating a pipeline of Black educators! In the highly anticipated 2024 edition of the Building the Black Educator Pipeline Podcast, our esteemed host Shayna Terrell, and the wise Dr. Greg Carr, join forces to delve into the strategies and initiatives that can help us kickstart this year with a bang. 

With Martin Luther King Jr. Day just around the corner, it is imperative that we take the time to reflect on the significance of this iconic figure's life and legacy. In a society often prone to glossing over the true narrative of Dr. King's journey, it is our duty and responsibility to unveil the untold stories and highlight the remarkable impact he had on the civil rights movement. By refusing to let America gloss over his struggles, triumphs, and unwavering dedication to justice, we ensure that his legacy lives on and continues to inspire generations to come.

Through thought-provoking discussions on the podcast, we aim to shed light on the lesser-known aspects of Dr. King's life. By diving deep into the rich tapestry of his experiences, we hope to inspire meaningful conversations and reflections on the progress we have made as a society, as well as the work that still lies ahead.

As we kick off this new year, let us stand together in our commitment to providing a quality education for Black children and fostering a diverse community of Black educators. By harnessing the power of knowledge, empathy, and understanding, we can create a brighter future where every child has equal opportunities to thrive and succeed.
