What We Are
In the city where Dr. King was assassinated in 1968, the unfortunate event has left a proverbial scar on the city of Memphis, the south, and America. While progress has been made, there is much more to do.
Dr. King came to the city to not only fight for the rights of sanitation workers, but also against the systemic institution of racism.
In 2020, Racism was declared a pandemic in Shelby County. To not tackle how racism affects the school system would be an injustice to our students. As an educational organization, serving students in two of Memphis’ most disadvantaged communities, we feel it’s only right that we make it our mission to dismantle and disrupt and unjust educational system rooted in racism; a system that directly affects our students and their families and can ultimately impact the trajectory of their success.
