Mr. Clarence Henderson, civil rights leader who was a member of the Greensboro Four who were arrested at Woolworth's lunch counter in Greensboro joined our Charter School Leader Community to discuss the current racial unrest, peaceful protest, and how school choice and charter schools, and educators in general can contribute to a better society.
Here were some of Mr. Henderson's teaching point quotes:
“The new protest is the ballot box.”
“It’s not what’s behind you or in front of you that matters. It’s what’s IN you that matters.”
'We the people, not they the government."
"And so no matter what way a person other person sees me, that doesn't bother me, because I don't allow anybody to occupy the space in my mind because they have not paid in rent to be there."
"It doesn't matter your political party you can advocate for equality."
“Silence is consent.”
And so many more.
We will be creating roundtables in the coming weeks to discuss these topics and more. If you want to learn more about this opportunity, email [email protected]
