We are aware of the attacks of removing cultural curriculum from public education. An African-American owner of an education consulting company, I would feel remorse not to enlighten the next generation of the impact of black history in our county.

Follow us this month, as we will be blogging, posting, and sharing about black history in conjunction with college prep.
