Dr, Hollie

Straight from the epicenter of the murder of George Floyd and the ensuing global uprisings, in this episode, we hear from school leader and equity warrior, Dr. George Nolan. As an educator in Minneapolis-St. Paul and the surrounding areas, Dr. Nolan witnessed first hand the aftermath of Floyd's murder that has gripped not only the Twin Cities but the world in what has become the spark for racial justice reformation. His perspective is multi-faceted and fascinating. Over the past 15 years, George has been a dean, assistant principal, principal and central office director. He has viewed the fight for equity, justice, and cultural responsiveness from many vantage points that we can learn from. Coupled with his experience as an educator, though, is his reality of living in central Minnesota as an African American man, which adds an additional, complex layer to his journey to responsiveness, as he, like many African American men, realized that George Floyd could have been him.
