To celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Freedom Fellows participated in a financial literacy program presented by Mr. Clifton Williams of Guarantee Bank. We learned how to prepare for college through sound planning and saving! Thanks to Americorps VISTA volunteer Mr. Johnson for bringing Mr. Williams to the LEAD Center.
Freedom Fellows also braved the cold to harvest kale and cabbage and prepare a lunch feast! We discussed MLK's legacy and watched his final Mountaintop speech. Our students are continuing in MLK's work by fighting for their education and being activists in their school and community! #MLKDay
