Crisis is bigger than just the pandemic
Shawn Hardnett
02:41:14
The reason why Leaders of Color thrive in crisis is because we have never existed in this country without crisis. We thrive in crisis because we have been formed in crisis. We have in so many ways - always been under attack. We now have a national health pandemic to run concurrent to the racial pandemic that has always been there. What would happen if we were given the opportunity to lead without a crisis, without a fire, without a frontal attack, without perverse scrutiny, without the assumption of loss, failure and incompetence - and with positive regard?
Ayana Malone
02:41:40
We, as a community, have lived through pandemics of health, crisis and violence for generations.
Shawn Hardnett
02:43:20
I love “ongoing emergent conditions”.
Kathryn Procope
02:45:40
Correct Shawn. We have always existed in crisis
Ramona Edelin
02:47:05
Authorizers often have difficulty accounting for Vision and Mission of Charters -- rather than succumbing to the impulse for standardization and centralization.
Ayana Malone
02:53:52
Yes, Ramona!
Dr Cheryl Mason
02:54:51
Many of the authorizers in Michigan are located up in the upper peninsula of Michigan. They are 8-10 ours away from children who live in the Detroit and Southeastern Michigan Area! They need to understand our communities!
