Hi Save Seattle Schools readers!
I am a Garfield graduate now attending Rice University in Houston, TX. I am taking a class called"Black in Schools," which examines the history of and current state of education for black students in America. For my final project in this class, I need to explore issues in black education through the personal experience of a single person--a student or educator. For this project, I am interested in interviewing a student, teacher, or administrator from the now-defunct African American Academy.
If there are any former AAA students or educators interested in talking to me about their experiences there—or if you know someone who would be—please contact me by phone at (206) 288-9051 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My initial research on the African American Academy leads me to think that it might provide a very interesting perspective on some of the issues we are studying in my course, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
