Freedom School

My sister is deeply involved in organinzing and running the Tyree Scott Freedom School, a reincarnation of the Freedom Schools that sprung up all over the south during the Civil Rights Movement. It is a weeklong retreat focusing on Institutional Racism. Another friend of mine, Dustin Washington, who I coached a basketball team with last winter, is also one of the key leaders. There was an article about the conference in the Seattle P-I today featuring interviews with Megan (my sis) and Dustin. Check it out.
