There are an abundance of teachers here at the summit! I'm sitting at a table with teachers from San Lorenzo Unified and Berkeley Unified. The opening plenary started with a prayer and the singing of the Black National Anthem accompanied by a beautiful video.

One of the threads weaving this summit together is the fact that African-Americans are a people of hope, we stand on the shoulders of a powerful and inspirational ancestry. The stories of speakers' lives shows just how much of an impact the pillars in our community have on a student's educational growth and achievement. People like you and I have an enormous task at hand to engage and challenge this next generation!
