So today, once I completed my preparation for my workshop tomorrow at New York Collective of Radical Educators' 3rd Annual Conference, I sat still for one moment and begin reflecting on next steps: Fill Out a Grant, Go to the Spa, Go Campaign. As I consider, I remember, I must stop considering the projects, the programs, the proposals, and begin considering the people.
Today I launched a fundraiser to raise $12,000 in 90 days. And at the same time I let it go. Truth is. I feel confident. In the people. In the lessons. In the exercise. I invite you to participate. Pledge just $10 and you will receive regular updates to see how the drama of a Black man in New York City starting a non-profit teaching young people character skills through basketball. Beautiful. BS. Brilliant.
