PHOTO OF THE DAY: Give Me Free (Books)!!


Taken April 25, 2012 in Philadelphia, PA.

The irony of this scene was very striking to me.  What does it say to you?

  1. This one definitely speaks volumes. With so much going on regarding education these days, I think this picture represents two important things: our young black men and them bucking against stigmas in society that deem them unteachable or uninterested in learning. I’ve seen firsthand how some educators look at our young men and stereotype them as another thug or gangsta on the street. I’ve also seen how these young men are confused and frustrated with these false labels and seek to take them on head on every opportunity they get. This powerful.

    No one has to teach our kids to WANT to succeed; all of them want to achieve and be better than those before them. It’s up to us to be role models and show them the path to their dreams and helping them any way that we can, in this case it’s resources and knowledge.

    I love this Tiesh.
