    I was hoping you can help me promote a positive initiative that I do annually. Each May i invite positive African American men into my school community with the goal of getting to 100! The men come in and out, as their schedules permit, to read to the students, perform for students, share their talent or hobby and/or give motivational/career talks.

    It is my philosophy that students "Can't be what they can't see, and they can't go where they don't know!" I have been an educator for over 22 years and I have always been committed to exposing my students to positive people and experiences. This year it is NO different, but with the insurgence of violence in the West Englewood Community where I serve, I need this May to be flooded with POSITIVE male images!!!!! I need my students to hear that the world is much bigger than the block and what they see/experience daily IS NOT the norm!!!!!!!

    Something has got to change and soon!!!! I see on social media, especially after we've lost another angel to violence, that people want to help!!!!! I am offerring my challenging and thirsty school community as a platform. Please let me know if you can support me with getting the word out!
