Education is that whole system of human training within and without the school house walls, which molds and develops men. W. E. B. Du Bois Du Bois schools implement instructional goals and methods that are most effective with at-risk students: a strong focus on academic achievement, an integrated curriculum and a supportive learning environment.

100 years ago today, the deadliest racial massacre in U.S. history began in the thriving Greenwood African American community of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In May of 1921, the imprisonment of Dick Rowland, a black man falsely accused of assaulting a white woman, sparked the Tulsa massacre. A lynch mob gathered to hang Rowland and black Tulsans hurried to the courthouse to protect him. From May 31 to June 1, white mobs ransacked, razed, and burned over 1,000 homes, businesses, and churches in Greenwood, and murdered scores of African Americans.
“For fully forty eight hours, the fires raged and burned everything in its path and it left nothing but ashes and burned safes and trunks and the like where once stood beautiful homes and business houses. And so proud, rick, black Tulsa was destroyed by fire—that is its buildings and property; but its spirit was neither killed nor daunted.”- B. C. Franklin
Dozens of black-owned businesses were rebuilt in Greenwood within a year of the massacre, and hundreds more followed over the next three decades. This rapid rebuilding illustrates the energy and resiliency of the community. But the massacre’s repercussions—and questions of race, memory, and repair—continue to resonate in Tulsa and across the nation. #Tulsa100

Congratulations to our District Director, Toni Gilcrest-Brittenum for being featured in Toastmaster Magazine! She has led the District to #1 in the region and President's Distinguished! Here's the excerpt:
Antoinette Brittenum, DTM, of Blue Nile Toastmasters in Memphis, Tennessee, says she used her “High Performance Leadership” project—a Level 5 elective—to benefit her district. The aim was to boost member participation and training in an effort to receive Smedley Distinguished status, a new level of Distinguished recognition implemented last year. As for learning from her leadership decisions, Brittenum says she found value in multiple lessons learned during meetings.
“After each club, area and division event, an evaluation meeting was held to identify challenges, barriers and concerns that hindered our goals.”
She says the Dynamic Leadership path, with its required projects and many electives, has helped her to more patiently and actively listen to her team and family members, strategically plan ahead and communicate her thoughts with clarity.
