In a year of devastating loss within our community – our founder Dirk and our peerless advocate Rachel Willis Henry, among others – we are honoring their spirit and endless drive for our Black children with tomorrow’s 2022 Black Excellence Awards.
It’s a time where we will hold space for their memory and legacy by recognizing those leaders – elders, parents, educators, students, and influencers – who have helped shape public education in our Oakland community and beyond. Tomorrow night, we will recognize their contributions, and over the year ahead, we will showcase their work and ways for you to support our mission to address the State of Black Education.
Tickets to the event are now completely accounted for so if you missed out, we’ll be streaming live from YouTube beginning at 5pm, so you can catch all of the action. Join us here tomorrow at 5pm PST, and as folx say these days, smash that subscribe button as we start to provide you more content in the coming months. For a reminder to join, add the Excellence Awards to your calendar.
Remember, honor, and celebrate with us tomorrow!
