16. Leona Tate: Civil Rights Pioneer
On November 14, 1960, six years after separate black and white schools were ruled unconstitutional in the Brown vs Board of Education ruling, four 6-year-old girls in New Orleans became the first African Americans to integrate white-only public elementary schools in the Deep South. On that day three girls Leona Tate, Gail Etienne, and Tessie Prevost enrolled in McDonogh No. 19 School at 5909 St. Claude Avenue. A fourth girl Ruby Bridges began classes at William Frantz School at 3811 North Galvez Street. The Integration of New Orleans public elementary schools marked a major focal point in the history of the American Civil Rights Movement. With worldwide attention focused on New Orleans, federal marshals wearing yellow armbands began escorting The New Orleans Four to the schools at 9 am. By 9:25 am the two public elementary schools in the Deep South were integrated. In 2009, Leona Tate, established the Leona Tate Foundation for Change to help purchase McDonogh 19, the school she with Tessie Prevost and Gail Etienne integrated. Today, she and her partners Alembic Community Developers are readying the historic landmark building to reopen in Spring 2021 as the Tate, Etienne, and Prevost (TEP) Center. A mixed-use development dedicated to the history of New Orleans Public School Desegregation, Civil Rights, and Black Life. Her mission for the TEP Center is to create a safe space and community anchor where the public can learn, support, and train for anti-racism activism and social restorative justice.

12: The Power of Co-oppetition
We often find ourselves in a competition in education. We may set a goal to have higher test scores than a colleague to prove that we are better. As school leaders, we might get some enjoyment out of going to the district data meetings so you can show off all the great work that our school is doing. According to Simon Sinek in his book the Infinite Games, this is defined as the short game. Also known as playing to win. There are just a few problems with this. One, the competition is completely made up. The other person probably has no clue that you have mentally formulated this diabolic plan to show them up. The other problem with the short game is it completely defies the purpose of Education. As educators, we are obligated to help our students grow intellectually. So how do we avoid this finite mindset and shift to an infinite mindset? In today's, episodes we explore how to embrace the infinite mindset and harness the power of coopetition. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
