To those friends who have served, a question. But first, many of you may remember the Berlin Airlift. The US flew goods across Soviet controlled East Germany to help those people in Berlin who needed assistance. My question, why can’t the U.S. do the same for Ukraine? If not the U.S., why not the UN?

Imagine a national play featuring our very own illustrious Principal Anna J Cooper, and the M Street High School. This performance explores the trials and tribulations faced by a black educator in her efforts to prepare little “colored” girls and boys to take their place in the world. And the renowned M Street High School was at the forefront!

This is a must-see event. You don’t want to miss it!

Be on the lookout for more information in the next couple of weeks.
