Melanated Mom
Dismantling Racism in the Education System
Show Notes

I have been on a little hiatus and this was the perfect episode to return with. Y'all know I ride hard for kids around here and with the state of the world today we have to figure out how we can correct our education system so that each group is represented equally and fairly. I am sickened by a lot of what I have seen go on in the education system for many Black and Brown children, including my own. I have been blessed to have a lot of moms in this fight for equality with me and four of them are joining me on this episode.
